THE MAGIC KEY CENTRE FOR THE ARTS AND CHILDHOOD and Reading Caterpillar Library
WEEKEND POETRY with Samina Mishra
Workshop For Children
This 2-day poetry workshop for children focuses on two key ideas – self-expression and rhythm. The workshop uses playful word exercises to understand sounds and syllables as the basis of rhythm in poetry, and encourages children to write from their own experiences and context. The workshop also includes reading and discussing different kinds of poems to understand the ways in which words create rhythm, and how imagery and metaphor form the basis of the poetic imagination.

Fees: INR 2000
Venue: Reading Caterpillar Library, F-24 2nd Floor Nizamuddin West, New Delhi – 13
