Poetry can be a portal to release what you’ve been holding onto the page.
Join Rocio Franco, @chio_la_chingona, for a two-part Poetry as Portal workshop.
October 15th / 12pm-2pm
We’ll discuss misconceptions about poetry, poems from Chicago-raised and based poets/Latinx/Chicanx poets, and have fun writing prompts to get us writing. Let’s talk, write, and be in community together.
*All writing levels are welcome.
*Bring your notebooks and pens/pencils or laptop.
*We encourage attending both dates, but showing up to one is ok too.
*Recommended for ages 18+
** Workshops are accessible to everyone. Please select your ticket registration that best fits your accesibility.
