The Poartry Project, an organization that creates opportunities for people to share their experiences through poetry, is holding a plein air poetry experience from Rock Point for those who love words, being outdoors and storytelling. The one-hour virtual walk-along will be held via Zoom from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19.

Explore new experiences and spontaneous prompts to write haiku, hokku and tanka poems. No experience necessary. Children welcome and encouraged, as are homeschoolers. See for more information and to register.
