8/12/09 – Open Myk / Workshop

Got a poem that needs retooling? A workshop is just the thing!

Come Prepared! You need to bring copies of a poem you would like to rework. During the workshop each participant will pass these copies to the people who are in the workshop. The author reads the poem, everyone else follows along on the printed page – and will be writing down their comments, questions, possible edits and give them back to you.. BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS ON THE COPIES.
