The Helsinki Poetry Connection offers workshops by spoken word professionals on creative writing, performance, improvisation, and more. We can tailor our workshops to your specific needs with the help of the form below. We set the pace and contents of these collaborative meetings according to the level at which the participants are familiar with spoken word. Our organizers have experience in a broad variety of genres and styles; most also teach in other capacities and actively perform their material.
Spoken word poetry is an excellent way to deepen one’s sense of self, develop critical thinking, find joy and wisdom, and foster a sense of community. Anyone and everyone is eligible for our workshops, as no prior experience with writing poetry is necessary; just a passion for the power of language! We can also design our workshops to fit any specific theme or topic.
