The Work Poetry Workshop: Monday Night Edition
December 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree – $20
Join us on the second and fourth Monday of every month for The Work.
Upcoming Monday night workshops will take place on January 10 & 24, February 7 & 21, March 14 & 28, April 11 & 25, May 9 & 23, and June 13 & 27. July through December dates TBA. Note: there will be no Monday night workshop on December 27.
The Work is a drop-in poetry writing workshop for beginners as well as more experienced writers. Poetry encourages empathy and compassion, and sparks the shifts in consciousness which can lead to healing, personal growth, and an interest in fighting for progressive social change.
We will read and discuss poetry, write several new poems, and give each writer feedback on at least one of the drafts composed during the workshop.
The cost for the workshop is a suggested donation of $20 to Christopher Luna’s PayPal account: christopherjlun
“Suggested” means that we would like for you to join us regardless of whether or not you can afford it right now. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Bring a poem to share as a way of saying hello.
Please email Christopher Luna at christopherjlun
