Beyond Baroque's First Annual 30 in 30 Workshop with Poet Brendan Constanine
About this Event
Ever since April became National Poetry Month back 1996, many poets have tasked themselves to write a poem a day for the whole month. Thus began the tradition known as 30/30. For 2021, Beyond Baroque present a special event: The ‘First Annual 30 in 30 Workshop.’ Starting March 31st, poet Brendan Constantine will offer everything you need to meet the challenge. Each class will include group discussions on the art of poetry, effective tools and routines, and enough prompts to keep you busy until the next class and beyond. No experience necessary. Writers of all genres welcome. Join us and be inspired.
7:00 - 9:00 on Wednesdays from March 31 to April 21. The workshop will be held via Zoom. Participants will be sent a link after registration.
