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.
