Arrive in advance of tonight’s event for an early-bird workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the show. The one-hour workshop has limited space and begins at 5:30, with latecomers admitted no later than 6:00. This is a generative workshop that is open to anyone who wants to write a poem and contribute to the night’s feeling of community.
Workshop leader Toni Bee is a writer, educator, and decorated local poet and leader in the artistic community. Learn more about Toni, who will also be the featured poet for the night, at this link.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Bring the Heat!
Toni Bee will guide you in how your words choice and tone can make a room quite sweaty. Show up to learn how. We will workshop a poem / and folks will generate work and share back.
Cover charge is $5-$20 sliding scale, which includes admission to the evening show. We ask financially stable poets to consider contributing the higher end of this scale (or more) in order to defer costs for others and support this teaching artist’s generous donation of time to our space.
Due to the constraints of the venue, this workshop has limited space; room can be guaranteed to poets who identify as POC or queer. The best way to secure a spot in the workshop is to send an email.
The venue is 18+ and a photo ID is required. For more information on the night’s open mic, click here.
