SECOND SUNDAYS: Who Says You’re Not a Poet?

“Who Says You’re Not a Poet?, lead by Bob McLaughlin, is on Sunday, October 9 from 2-4pm and is open to all ages and experience levels. “If you think you can’t write poetry, October’s Second Sunday is for you. Forget everything you think you don’t know, and just show up. Can’t spell? Forget it. Not so good with grammar? Forget it. Don’t know any poetic forms? Forget that, too. All you need is your big bag of experiences and unique way of seeing the world. The rest will take care of itself. You might even have fun.” – Bob McLaughlin
