Your teacher

Hello! I'm Michal and I'm a poet who loves writing innovative poetry and a teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience. I am also a TED speaker. I discovered innovative poetic forms in 2017 and they continue to blow my mind ever since. Writing experimental poetry can actually be simpler than writing traditional poetry and what I teach is the FUN of writing!
