Verses to Nourish the Soul: A Poetry Appreciation Class On March 24, 2012
Reading poetry can be one of the most inspiring activities—you don’t have to be a poet or a writer to appreciate it and make it part of your reading list. Designed by Words Writers’ Workshop, in cooperation with Sugarleaf and MEDICard Lifestyle Center, will hold Verses to Nourish the Soul on March 24, 2012, Saturday, 2-5pm, at the MEDICard Lifestyle Center.
The poetry appreciation class aims to demystify the elements of poetry so the reader can focus on taking inspiration from the poems. Poet Carlomar Arcangel Daoana, author of three collections, including Clairvoyance recently published by the UST Publishing House, will lead the class in this enlightening afternoon of readings, discussions and a fun writing exercise even non-writers will enjoy.
Selected poems on creative inspiration as well as poems from Mr. Daoana’s books will be read, discussed and enjoyed. Class is open to lovers of literature and people looking into learning how to appreciate poetry beyond the textbooks. To complement the nourishing aspect of the class, Sugarleaf Makati will serve healthy merienda and share how foods at Sugarleaf nourish the body.
