At last month’s meeting of Blue Mountains Writers we were lucky to have the expertise of award winning poet Jan O’Loughlin, who showed us how to write various styles of poetry including free verse and haiku.

During the workshop Jan explained, ‘Poetry makes the invisible, visible and expresses our deepest feelings, joys and sorrows. A poem allows us to preserve an emotional experience so a reader can access it as if it were their own.”

We will revise Jan’s poetry writing exercises at our next meeting on Sunday 2nd June at Springwood Sports Club. For those who missed out on the workshop, we have extra copies of the notes to share.

Blue Mountains Writers are a branch of the Fellowship of Australian (NSW) and meet monthly in Springwood. We aim to encourage writers at any age and stage, from beginners to published authors. Come to our next meeting Sunday 2nd June at Springwood Sports Club.
