"Poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence."
— Audrey Lorde
Meet the team
Caroline Masters and Gus Simonovic, two highly experienced poets and educators, combined forces in 2016 and began running poetry workshops for young people throughout Auckland.
‘Gus delights in wordplay and his love of poetry is infectious. His understanding of poetry’s evocative power is an inspiration. A highly skilled poet, Gus’s work has strength, depth and clarity and reveals fine workmanship.’ - Anita Arlov, NZSA, Inside Out (spoken word events)
We are offering poetry workshops for schools. During the workshops we will guide participants as they create poems to be collected, edited and published in a beautiful poetry anthology.
‘Caroline has a unique and special gift when it comes to teaching. She makes learning fun and makes people feel special within a very positive learning environment. Caroline caters easily for people of different ages and stages. I highly recommend Caroline to anyone looking to lift the skill, performance and confidence of others.’ - J. Cobham, parent
