Be Better or Whatever Writing Workshop with Dave Silverberg

Tuesday, December 8, 2015 - 6:30pm

We are back with another workshop, and it's a special one for two reasons:

It will be run by Dave Silverberg, the artistic director and founder of Toronto Poetry Slam! He has brought many workshops to schools and community centres across Ontario, so you're in good hands, poets!

The workshop will focus on writing spoken word poems with fresh powerful imagery, and you'll have an opportunity to perform poems you write then and there. So bring pens, paper, your laptop, whatever...and feel free to also bring poems you've written before in case we have time for an open mic.
