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 Siaara Freeman is, among other things, a Cleveland poet, avid reader, Brave New Voices graduate and coach, and absolutely unquiet artist and leader. Siaara will present a highly personal workshop developed with the intent of finding joy in grief. This will be a rare opportunity to work with Siaara to generate a poem and share in the community of others. Learn more about the workshop leader here.
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, and we do expect tonight’s event to be popular; 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.
