Get your creative juices flowing for National Poetry Month 2024 with Typewriter Rodeo! Whether you’re a poet or not, this workshop has something for everyone, including a room full of typewriters to play with. Clacking away on those keys with no way to correct your mistakes is freeing and just darn fun! In this one-day, fast-paced workshop, you’ll write between 12 to 21 short poems in less than 2 hours. Yes, really! And, along the way, discover a bit more about the creative voice that’s been waiting inside you, patiently, to peek out.

Workshop Dates: Saturday, March 30, 2024 10am-12pm CST, in person at Gemini Ink

Cost: Nonmember: $115; Member: $100; Student/Educator/Mil $75
