Writing & Performance Workshops


Writing and performance workshops are the foundation of our practice at the Poetry Society of Los Angeles. Here is where we develop characters, seek truths, witness and find self. We create an environment of radical acceptance while holding a positive and safe space. We work with accomplished artists, first comers to public speaking and everyone looking to develop their creativity through interdisciplinary arts based exercises that open the mind, thrusting forward our work collectively as we forge an ever growing community.
