“Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people”

– Adrian Mitchell

people? Rowan will share tips and skills on how to find topics that strike a chord with
others, while still staying true to who you are. Whether you’ve never written a poem in your
life, or you’ve been writing it since the day you could hold a crayon, all are welcome to this
free session.
