Program Description

Event Details

Everyone has a story worth sharing, whether you know it or not. It’s a matter of discovering what you have to say and pulling the poem out of it. Join local professional poet Kelsey Bigelow to uncover the poem within you and let the ideas take up space on the page. You may be surprised by what you can craft!

To ensure everyone can participate fully, space in this program is limited.

Kelsey Bigelow is a member of the Iowa Poetry Association and Academy of American Poets. She has led the Des Moines Poetry Workshop since February 2018. Learn more about Kelsey at her website.
