Join Jon Sands, the night’s scheduled feature, for an early-bird workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the show. Jon will welcome all comers to his one-hour workshop: Carving Out the Poem: You, Your Poems, and the 3-Dimensional World. From the workshop leader:
“When our life experience suggests that celebration always comes laced with melancholy, and joy is a border that surrounds sorrow; how can we construct poems that acknowledge a complicated and dynamic world? How do we avoid writing that transforms us into caricatures? How can we guide an audience into the experience of what it actually feels like to be us? In Carving Out the Poem: You, Your Poems, and the 3-Dimensional World, we will explore tangible ways to create a 3-dimensional view of our poems. Bring a notebook, pen, and a sense of adventure as we take our art to the edge of the universe, and bring back proof that we’ve been there.”
Doors for the show open at 5:30, and the workshop runs from 6:00 to 7:00. Cover charge is $5, which includes admission to the evening show. The venue is 18+ (ID required).
