Unleashing our Poetic Voices

April 6, 2022 - April 27, 2022

Feeling leashed to free verse? Join Florida Poet Laureate for Volusia County, M.B. McLatchey, in exploring how writing in poetic forms can unleash our most authentic voices. Beginners to advanced-level poets are invited to discover how writing in traditional forms such as the ode, sonnet, and even self-invented forms can free us to let our unconscious play a role in our art.

Free and open to everyone!
Limited to 15 participants – RSVP coming soon
