Come celebrate the people, places, and things you love through the time-honored tradition of writing them an ode! We will look at examples from classic literature to modernity before composing our own.  Examples will include odes by John Keats, Pablo Neruda, Keneth Koch, Bernadette Meyers, and more!  Expect to leave with a finished draft and some on the spot feedback.

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
