Last year brought to many the power and wonder of poetry. This workshop will be looking at poets from the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Emphasis will be on the reading out loud of their work. Participants also will give a short summary of the poets life and work, with the main thrust being to listen and discuss the poetry presented.
