6:00pm, $Give What You Can ($10-$15 suggested donation)
Due to snowy weather, we have rescheduled this workshop for Wednesday 1/23 from 6-8 PM.
Time to train for the Marathon! Open to all Poetry Marathon readers, this afternoon workshop will offer tips for improving delivery and self-confidence while performing your work aloud in front of an audience.
Attendees! Franklin and Sam ask that you come prepared with a few pieces of your own writing as well as a collection of poetry that you particularly enjoy.
And remember, this workshop is open to anybody who is interested in honing their performance skills, including those who are not participating in the poetry marathon. See you Saturday!
