Join Inprint on Saturday, July 25 as Inprint Poetry Busker Josie Mitchell writes free poems on the spot on requested themes for attendees of CAMH’s Virtual Summer Family Day via IG Live. To be entered into the drawing to receive a free customized poem, email your name and requested poem theme (including a few adjectives or key points) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 22, 5 pm. Then on Saturday at 1:30PM five lucky individuals will be chosen at random to receive their very own poem written just for them. Josie will be back at 2:30PM on IG Live and share aloud the written poems, along with a piece of her own writing. Join Josie and Inprint and celebrate the power of poetry!
