We all know the serious side of creative writing, but what about the lighter side of the literary arts? This workshop will hit
the funny bone of disengaged students with laugh out loud examples of personification, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, and

Spoken word poet meets eternal optimist, Miranda’s poetry ranges in topic from child’s play to empowerment, giving life’s obstacles a feel-good finish. A member of the 2014 slam team, a member of the 2013 International spoken word program at the Banff centre, a Calgary Arts Development grant recipient, and a 2-time Canada Council for the Arts grant recipient, she has since co-founded the spoken word network YYSpeak to create a communal and supportive space for spoken word artists.
