At Poetry Heals, we are dedicated to healing through creative self expression. Our trained mentors facilitate workshops that guide people to explore their feelings and process difficult experiences through writing. 

Our work is made possible through the generous contributions of community members like you. Please consider donating to keep our work going!

Poetry really does heal!


What We Do

Write together!


We work in collaboration with various institutions to help students and at-risk youth, people experiencing incarceration, formerly incarcerated individuals, military veterans, people in behavioral health facilities, and more!

Support Groups

We work with non-profits and support groups that support people fleeing domestic violence, people experiencing homelessness, people in sober recovery, LGBTQ+ individuals, at-risk youth, and more!


We happily host regular open workshops and public events that are free for everyone! Or, for the do-it-yourself-er, check out our free poetry prompts and fill-in-the-blank templates to start writing from the comfort of your home!
