Join Kingston's Poet Laureate Jason Heroux for an exciting poetry workshop!

A poetry prompt is a concept or image that helps provide a starting point for a poem. A great way to help get your poetic fountains flowing, poetry prompts can be fun, meaningful, zany, profound, or all of the above. Join Jason Heroux as he guides participants through a series of poetry prompts (anywhere between 1 to 99) designed to inspire you. Enter with an open mind and exit with a handful of new poems!

Space limited to twenty participants
