Come and enjoy discovering poems inside you that take you to places you didn't know you knew.  Whether you already write poetry or are completely new to the medium, Langley poet Judith Adams will make poetry writing a relaxed and fun adventure. In this two-session class she will share a series of activities that naturally engage your poetic voice and are sure to surprise and delight you. Judith creates a safe and supportive atmosphere where even the most reticent poet will feel comfortable. She firmly believes that everyone has a poet inside ready to come out. 

Judith Adams is a Whidbey Island poet, born in Suffolk, England. Her poetry has been featured in the anthology The Poetry of Dogs, published by J.A. Allan. She regularly performs in our community with local artists and in venues in Seattle such as the Frye Art Museum.   Her poetry books include Crossing the Line, I Wanna Die Nice and Easy, Love letters Only, A Place Inside, and Springing the Hill which placed in the Reader’s Digest Poetry Book Contest.  She has also recorded audio CD’s of these books and of her performances.  

For four years Judith served as a speaker for Humanities Washinging traveling the state to share her love of poetry in prisons, schools, art museums, libraries, and assisted living communities. On the third Thursday of each month she offers an on-line reading and discussion for Healing Circles Global (healingcircles.org). Her most recent book, Poems for the Village, is a collection of poems she has written about people and events on Whidbey.
