Attendees! Franklin and Sam ask that you come prepared with a few pieces of your own writing as well as a collection of poetry that you particularly enjoy.

And remember, this workshop is open to anybody who is interested in honing their performance skills, including those who are not participating in the poetry marathon. See you Saturday!
