Weekly Wed 10am DROP IN: (Not) Dead (Yet) Poet’s Society
Join us on Wednesdays from 10-12pm for the (Not) Dead (Yet) Poet’s Society, led by Anna DiMartino and Ron Salisbury. We will have a lively discussion on a contemporary piece of poetry, work from a writing prompt, writing for a short time (10-15mins), and we’ll read/critique participants’ work (if they would like). Participants are encouraged to bring 10 copies of a work in progress, not to exceed 1 page.
Drop-in (no registration required). $10 members / $15 nonmembers per session
