You will craft a Poetry of Place portrayal of your experience, a personalized souvenir like no other. We will visit two special locations in St. Augustine, one outdoors and one indoors. At each, you will receive guidance on how to capture your experience in your own poetic style. I will provide exercises which help you see and write about the rich history and unique beauty of St. Augustine. I will show you how to capture images and feelings by playing with language. And all those other places you’ll visit on your journey through life? The skill you develop will allow you, wherever you go, to capture the Poetry of Place.

I grew up on an enchanted island which inspires poets. I’ve combined my love of language and love of place to help you create poetry wherever you may be. I am Rosalinda, and I want to guide you on a poetic journey. I’m an award-winning poet, who has taught communications at Flagler College in St. Augustine. I am a wellness coach who understands how emotion enhances experience. I am the owner of Well Written Consulting and an acclaimed instructor. I love this Oldest City and want to help you bring home in poetry your own memories of this beautiful town.
Our lesson begins at the bayfront. From this vantage, we will see many historic sights unique to St. Augustine: the fort, the Bridge of Lions, the lighthouse, skyline, sailboats and possibly dolphins! We will observe the colors, sounds and vibrancy of The Oldest City. Next, we will walk through slave market and town center to the inside foyer of Flagler College to capture the feel of an indoor ambiance and spirit.

This is for poets of all ages and levels – even those who’ve never written a poem before. We will be walking between locations and sitting on hard surfaces. There may be a ghost story or two.
