For the past few months participants in Erika Jo Brown’s Spring 2017 Inprint Writers Workshop in Poetry–aspiring writers of varied backgrounds from throughout the greater Houston area–-have been exploring this form through in-class writing exercises, outside readings, and revising. Participants will give readings from the poems written in the workshops followed by an audience Q&A.
