Creative writing workshops, meetings with poets and outdoor activities will help you explore the world of poetry. You can also sign up for the Vacances-Poésie (Poetry Holiday) and get to be part of a small group who'll spend the whole day with a poet who'll guide each and every one of them in their writing. You can also attend a number of free 90-minute workshops offered throughout the Festival to the public and which provide an overview of poetry. Please note that these workshops are only offered in French.
