Tap Into Your Inner Poet

In this two hour drop-in workshop, Kate McCarroll Moore will be reading a bit from her book, Alphapoetica: A Poetry Primer for the Everyday Poet. She’ll be leading participants through two poetry-generating exercises using accessible poetry prompts. There will be a haiku wall available, and participants can also add to a collective poem.
