Writer's Workshop & Poetry Night

Poetry Night! Held on the last Friday of the month

NOW IN PERSON- Wearing a mask is suggested and recommended.

Join the Firehouse Art Center Writers for our Monthly Last Friday Poetry Night. Poetry is an opportunity; it gives us the chance to celebrate and commemorate all the wonderful moments in our lives from the simplest smiles to the most momentous victories. It also enables us to cope in challenging times. With poetry, we can address our problems, come to terms with them, and work to grow past them. It has the potential to move across the spectrum of human experience in a cathartic and often beautiful way. Please only read original work. This event is free but the Firehouse Art Center, as a 501c3 non-profit organization, always appreciates donations!
