Explore PHM's collections through rhythm, rhyme and rhetoric.

Creative Writing online with People's History Museum

What will happen in the session?

Explore PHM's collections through rhythm, rhyme and rhetoric

Discover PHM’s collection in a compelling and different way, using voice and language to explore an object’s journey.

Participants will work with a professional writer, using the museum’s unique collections to inspire a piece of creative writing.  Important issues to explore through objects include climate change, seeking refuge, women’s rights, and freedom of the press.

A practical, fun and engaging way to enhance writing and speaking skills using rhythm, rhyme and rhetoric.
