Join the Victoria Poetry Project for our workshop with Emilee Nimetz!|
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
This workshop will focus on performance with a little time aside for writing help; folks with all levels of experience with spoken word poetry are welcome to attend. This workshop is designed for adults, however, we recognize that teenaged folks are part of our community, so teens aged 14 and up are welcome to attend if they feel they can handle mature adult content.
15 seats are available for purchase ahead of time and we will be offering limited tickets at the door - guarantee your seat and get your ticket now!
12 of the online tickets are being offered at the regular rate of $10 and the remaining 3 are being offered at the benefactor rate of $20 to subsidize folks who want to attend but can't afford it.
If you would like a subsidized ticket, please contact VPP's Executive Director, Shayli Robinson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
