This spring, join writer, teaching artist and yoga instructor Kristen Zory King on a poetry hike through Rock Creek Park and experience the joy of creativity in motion. Together, we'll wander through three(ish) miles of winding trails, stopping frequently to share poems with one another as well as to spend time in creative reflection and journaling. Bring comfortable clothing, your favorite poem (or two! or three!) to share, and a notebook to jot down inspiration from the trees, the sky, and one another.
