Greater Chicago Church: Poetry Workshop
It's not too late to sign up for the poetry workshop with Joanne Diaz, THIS Saturday, February 4 from 10am-noon. I've had a number of conversations with folks who feel a desire to write, but it hasn't yet reached draft form. That's perfectly OK. The morning will be spent engaged in writing exercises and include practical instruction to jump start you own writing. Bring your pen, blank notebook, your dreams to write poetry and you'll be set. For more seasoned writers, this will be a great way to keep 'priming the pump' and expand your own skills.
The goal of this workshop is simply to equip writers and build community. Writing is typically very isolating, but we get a chance to do it together this weekend. Join us!
It will be held at the Fulton Street Collective, at 2000 W. Fulton Street, Chicago, 60612, so you'll also get a sneak peek at a space where we'll be hosting some more great resourcing events in the future! There's free, ample street parking and easy public transport. E-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details and register using the link below!
Upcoming "Somebody's Sins" Show!
JOE LANASA has been playing local area clubs since the late 90’s and his sound has grown and evolved along with the diverse crowds he plays for. His music is a blend of styles; garage-band, guitar-driven rock, punk, latin, and neo-spiritual rock anthems; with influences like early Springsteen, Jim Morrison to Van Morrison; Dylan, Marty Robbins, and Johnny Cash. None of which overshadow the emotion and style of his own heart and soul.
Anna Fermin's AWESOME New Video!
ROCK ON ANNA!
