A Continuing Studies spring retreat: The secret life of poems at Poets Cove

Join Denis Donnelly (RRU Choir Master, co-director of Gettin' Higher Choir and director of Soundings) at Poets Cove on Pender Island, a beautiful and secluded place where the ocean and the land meet in an ancient dialogue, and seek to deepen your own dialogue with the poetic tradition.

Working with poems mainly from the 20th and 21st centuries, many of them poems with the natural world close to their sources, you will explore the ways that poetry works both on the page and within us, and how it can enlighten and enliven your own passages.

What a brilliant way to welcome spring!
