Sharon Suzuki Martinez

Date: Wednesdays, Oct. 18 - Nov. 8, 2017, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Type: Workshop
Genre: Poetry
The daily grind of our busy lives sometimes makes us feel like we are cell phones charged at only 3%—perilously low-energy, uninspired devices. In this workshop, we will try out a wonderful slew of new techniques to tap the rich resources of inspiration waiting inside us and outside in our everyday world.
