Writing Workshops Begin June 5!

Back by popular demand: the Chicago Poetry Center is pleased to announce a suite of summer writing workshops, taught by some of Chicago’s fabulous poets, including: Tara Betts, Timothy David Rey, Daniel Woody, Laura Foglia, and Natasha Mijares.

We have workshops for those looking for a place to get started with poetry, for those who are blocked, or looking to play, for those looking to write from the body, dreams, and the unconscious. Check it all out and pick out the course/s for you at poetrycenter.org/workshops

All workshops take place at the Literacenter, using the entrance at 651 W. Lake St. (60661). Workshops include 6-Week long, weeknight workshops, and single-day, weekend workshops. Find out more at poetrycenter.org/workshops.
