” In February 2008, Ms. Armstrong was invited to participate in the TED speaker series where she made the case for the creation of a Charter for Compassion. Her talk had a great impact and led to her winning the coveted TED prize which allowed her to implement the beginnings of the Charter for Compassion.”
His Highness the Aga Khan introduction of Karen Armstrong at the 2018 Annual Pluralism lecture at Aga Khan centre in London, UK.
Do you sometimes wish you were a writer but you don’t know where to start? Do you think you have to earn a degree to be a writer? All it really takes to be a writer is a desire to write, imagination, time, and persistence. A writer is someone who writes. A poet is someone who sees the world differently from everyone else and who can put their vision into words.
Charter for Compassion is offering online self-paced course in poetry writing. Taught by one of the longest-serving poetry editors of a major national literary journal in American history, this online course includes mini-lectures, videos, polls, Q&A, and written exercises and reflections, as well as peer review. You can learn at your own place and within a comfortable time frame, typically 60 to 90 minutes a week for four weeks.
