I attended another wonderful workshop on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, at the Turkish House in Cary, NC, hosted by Jacar Press. They have a series called Writers Teaching Writers which brought in Metta Sáma and Deborah Bogen to give us wonderful instruction and readings. It also felt wonderful to socialize again with other poets after being out of the community for a few months.
Makes me seriously consider attending Salem College to study under Metta Sáma. For now, though, I am focused on writing more from all the inspiration they helped me generate this weekend.
I definitely recommend taking advantage of these great workshops.
