Poetry Alive is designed to be fun, educational and includes various poetry games. Through different types of poetry (haiku, concrete poems, free verse, sonnets, found poetry…) that reflect daily life and natural, Anna shows how words, thoughts, stories and images work together to enrich our experience and to extend our imagination. By combining computer arts with engaged writing activities, Anna helps participants explore the freedom of the writing process and enjoy their creativity with various writing exercises and games.
Anna Yin has designed and given more than 100 Poetry Alive workshops at schools, libraries and colleges across Canada and beyond. Here is a list of some of her Poetry Alive workshops. The following is a two-minute video introduction made in 2016.
