WNBA/South Florida Chapter
Poetry Slam and Presentation on publishing
Each year the month of April is set aside as National Poetry Month, a time to celebrate poets and their craft. Various events are held throughout the month by the Academy of American Poets and other poetry organizations. This year, the new WNBA South Florida Chapter will be hosting this event.
Writers on Writing: Wednesdays at the Westfield Campus of San Francisco State University. The OLLI classroom is Room 677 and holds 40 people.
Here's the course description:
Writers on Writing is a literary salon, where published authors will read from their books, talk about their creative process, and answer questions. A new author will be featured each week. After the Q&A, authors will offer a writing exercise based on their book, with time to share writing at the end of the session. If you've ever read a book and wanted to speak with the author, this class is for you.
