Poetry in Notion is a workshop designed to capture the minds of participants and make use of their experiences to form literary art. Members of the workshop are taught to create poetry in its various forms, practice spoken word and master the art of emotive expression. Emotive expression is a concept taught in the workshop that focuses on harnessing and utilizing emotion actively rather than simply experiencing it.

About the instructor: Hailing from Florida, Desmond Seymour has a unique perspective on the influence and societal relevance of poetry. His poems tackle class, race and political issues. Currently, he is developing a graphic novel that includes a number of graphic poetry pieces geared to draw in all listeners. Desmond hosts poetry workshops throughout the DC area and is an extended learning instructor in local DC charter schools.
