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 all levels of writers and performers who wish to contribute to the night’s feeling of community. Black poets are invited to attend this workshop for free.
Tatiana M.R. Johnson (she/her/hers) is a writer, artist and educator, MFA candidate in poetry at Emerson College, and poetry editor for the literary journal Redivider. Learn more about Tatiana, who will also be the featured poet for the night, at this link.
DESCRIPTION FROM THE WORKSHOP LEADER
We’ll spend this workshop hour on reclaiming trauma and healing. The workshop will be generative through various writing prompts, reflective as we’ll look at a poem or two and analyze it together. For those in the workshop who would like to share their work, we’ll do that as well.
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. Black poets are invited to attend this workshop at no cost.
Due to the constraints of the venue, our workshop have 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 and featured poet, click here.
