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.

Special thanks to Brazos Bookstore for hosting this reading. This reading is preceded by other activities celebrating Independent Bookstore Day. Click here and here for more information.
