Auntie’s bookstore is happy to host a poetry workshop organized and run by C.G. Dahlin. This is a free three week workshop (March 13, 20 and 27 at 5:30 to 6:45 pm each day). Each session will be independent, anyone would benefit from attending just one, however, those that attend all three will greatly benefit from how each of these subjects play together. Every session, attendees will walk out with at least one new written work.
The workshop will take place on the Mezzanine at Auntie’s Bookstore. If you have any inquires please contact email@example.com.
These workshops are free and open to the public.
