While our central theme is writing, literature, and authors, our dynamic program has something everyone can appreciate.

Online workshops: 5/30, 6/1, 6/6, 6/8 with performance on 6/9. This two-week poetry workshop will focus on the particulars of what it means to live, work, create, love, and grieve in Baltimore. We will use the city as our lens to declare our creative visions, describe our neighbor/hood(s), document that which we love and have lost, and explore new approaches to writing (and reading) poetry. There will be generative creative prompts to get your poetic juices flowing. One-on-one sessions will also be scheduled to discuss current and future projects, opportunities, and sources of support.
