do some free writing and warm-up games, look at published
poems about the self and community, and respond to them with
some quick and simple writing exercises. Be ready to explore
your own personal trajectory in life and your connection to
others. You will surprise yourself with knowledge you didn't
know you had. Bring a pen and paper, an open mind and a
playful attitude. Workshops will be led by Jon Sayers, a
local poet, playwright, teacher and workshop leader,

Peace' have been heard throughout the world. In recent years
he has performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London in a
programme that was recorded for the BBC. Only in March this
year "Voice from Assisi" was heard across America in a PBS
special screening. His visit to St George's Cathedral
precedes a tour in America. The musical director and
