Drop-In Poetry Workshop

Oakland Drop-In Poetry Workshop 2020 Winter:Spring


Drop-In Poetry Workshop

We’re bringing our show on the road.  Drop-In Poetry Workshop will open up in our Oakland space at Wework Downtown.  Pop in for a brief tune-up to work on your poetry skills.  Take one class, or all three in a sequence. Get your feet wet for our longer courses. Take this class if you have a busy schedule and can’t commit to a full workshop yet, but want to get in the poetic groove.

Taught by local luminaries in the poetry scene. We pull in different people each time. This first sequence is run by Paul Corman-Roberts.
