6:30pm – 7:30pm ~ Monthly Drop-In Poetry Workshop
All levels of experience are welcome because we all learn from each other. This is a non-threatening approach to short creative writing in response to a prompt. Most prompts work well to help us write poetry, but you don’t have to remember any of those poetic terms you may have once known. Each session will include mild instruction, sharing, and a period for writing.

How to Join Our Virtual Community

1) All virtual gatherings are held via Zoom. Download the zoom application onto you computer, tablet, or phone by clicking here: https://zoom.us/download

2) You do not need to create an account, but if you do, it is free. 

3) You can join our BUUF virtual gatherings in two ways:

  • If the application has been downloaded, you can click the meeting link directly from our event calendar. OR,
  • If you open your zoom application, you can click the “Join a Meeting” button and enter the unique meeting ID listed above. You will then be prompted for the password.

4) Follow to prompts to connect your audio and video. For the safety and security of our virtual community, all participants are automatically muted when entering a new meeting.

Tips for participants:

  1. Keep yourself muted. It helps reduce background noise. Ensure the red slash is over your microphone icon.
  2. For worship, concerts, big meetings, etc., you can choose “stop video” which will turn off your video camera, but you’ll still be able to see the gathering. This is the camera icon next to the microphone at the bottom of your app.
  3. The chat is a fun way to connect with folks while not disrupting the presenter or worship leaders.
  4. When links are shared in the chat, you can just click on them to open the window in your web browser and then come right back to zoom saving the link to look at later!
