SI OUTLOUD: WORKSHOP

Wrong Grave, Right Poem

: Poet workshops with TOM FUCALORO

“The Wrong Grave” is a short story that is really about the writer’s process, how we dig and dig until we find the right spirit. In this workshop, we will all engage in the conversation of the writer’s process and craft. Using actually lines from the short story as prompts, we will, as a group, talk about our process’ and expand on our own.

Thomas Fucaloro is the author of two books of poetry published by Three Rooms Press, most recently It Starts from the Belly and Blooms, which received rave reviews.

ADVANCED POETRY SLAM SERIES:
NINA BELEN ROBINS and the PROP OPEN MIC

You've heard the rules of slam where they say "No Props", well we want your props. We want you to have a poem including some sort of fantastical prop. This is not a requirement, just to add some more spice to the show.

Here's more about our feature

Nina Belen Robins is a three time national slam poet and grocery store employee. She is the author of “Supermarket Diaries” and “A Bed with my Name on It”. She lives with her husband and cats. She spent much of her life living in various institutions but has finally broken free and wants to normalize and destigmatize mental illness as best she can.
