CORPoetry is a unique and creative way to engage teams like never before. At PenPositive we believe everyone can express creatively, and it just needs a start. A Poetry Workshop is not just about writing, it is also about reading, about living and expressing a poem. A one of its kind experience for your team to creatively collaborate and bind. A journey through reading, writing and expressing a poem.
No! I Can’t
Well that is why it is important to try to write it. None of the things you do now are things you knew before you learned it or at least try to learn it. Poetry should be no different. I was not a big fan of poetry as I grew up. In fact I never knew that I would write. I started listening to recitals and spoken word before I had the courage to start writing. No one said I could and so I want to make sure I tell everyone that they can. If I can, then they can.
Poetry helps us understand abstractness. It teaches us that there are more than one way to say things. And that their is a beauty in the way words lay and also in the meaning hidden inside them
It is not just about writing
One would think poetry is just about writing, but it is not. Poetry is about expressing it, giving a life that make people close their eyes and listen. Take them to places they have never been to.
Read Out Loud
When you read a poetry aloud; yours or others the world around you changes magically. Yes it might not sound logical, but just pick a poem and read to someone you love. Or just sit in a room and read it like you mean it
Find Meanings in Expression
When you read out loud the poems so that you can express the meanings in them, they also start responding. The words talk back inside you. Some linger on in you and make you think. It is a way you connect with the author. If the author is you, it is a way to connect with yourself
As unique individuals we all understand in a different way. When it comes to life or work we often stand our ground often inflexible to negotiate. But with poetry, we are interested in knowing the other person’s perspective
Thinking outside the Cubicle
In the corporate world we all sit in rooms, cubicles and even open spaces to find solutions to problems that make the engines move in the world. What will happen, when we sit in a room and read and write and express Poetry?
