ONLINE: Neurodivergence and Poetry: an all-levels community workshop featuring Washington State Poet Laureate Arianne True

Event Description

Neurodivergent folks (and support people they’d like to bring) are invited to a workshop with Washington State Poet Laureate Arianne True on exploring how our neurodivergence can make for very cool poems. Self-diagnosed and formally diagnosed equally welcome! No writing experience needed. (Neurodivergence includes autism, ADHD, Tourette’s, dyslexia, and so much more.)

Arianne True is the 2023-2025 Washington State Poet Laureate, appointed by Governor Inslee. A member of the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations, she has dedicated years to teaching and mentoring young poets around the Salish Sea. Arianne has received fellowships from Jack Straw Cultural Arts, Hugo House, and Artist Trust. She is an alum of Hedgebrook and the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts and was recently the Seattle Repertory Theater’s first Native Artist-in-Residence.

The Poet Laureate program is sponsored by Humanities Washington and The Washington State Arts Commission/ArtsWA, with the support of Governor Jay Inslee. See the full website of the Poet Laureate here.

Poet Laureate events are produced by the hosting organization. More details about this event to come.
