The human being is both stream and tsunami, yet we have difficulty flowing around obstacles. Engage with a free verse poetry that taps into the conscious and subconscious using a basic unifying substance as our guide: water. We will use text, videopoetry and tonal sound therapy to contemplate, meditate, write, edit, experiment, question, share, give and receive feedback, co-create safe space and predict the future of humankind.

There are a total of 15 in-person workshop spaces available. Participants should bring along a pen or pencil and some paper for the writing exercises.

*Indigenous registrants: Please email us at contact@thecapilanoreview.com to register directly.

If all spaces are sold out, please email editor@thecapilanoreview.com to add yourself to the waitlist and we will notify you if a spot opens up!

No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If the registration fee presents a barrier to you, please contact us at contact@thecapilanoreview.com.
