[ID: Poets sit in a circle around Dana ID Mathews in the middle sitting with his legs stretched out. Some are on chairs, most are on the floor. They are either writing, reading, or listening. There are piles of coats on the floor and on the stacked chairs in the background/end ID]

The land of poetry spreads far and wide: you could spend days traveling from Metaphor to Extended Metaphor. And that’s before you even reach Rhyme and Alliteration!

Poets have spent years investigating the nooks and crannies of these regions and beyond. Have you been to the magical land of improvisation? Or explored the dark arts of banter? Have you crafted spellbinding chapbooks? Or trained in the martial discipline of mic technique?  There’s a lot to discover and if you’re a young, aspiring poet, this is your chance to travel through these lands with experienced spoken word poets to guide you.

Alma VanDusen & Peter Kaye Rooms and Inspiration Lab
Start: 10:00 AM
End: 12:00 PM
