Wednesday, July 25th at 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Join us for Poetry in Bloom, a monthly poetry writing group.
We will plant the seeds for new poetry by free-writing using writing prompts, sharing our work, and getting some practice reading aloud. BloomBars is a safe and encouraging space so don’t be shy, give it a try!
