Poets' Asylum - Wordswap Workshop & Extended Open Mic

Join us for our inaugural Last Sunday Workshop. Come meet up with Shakti* lady Sou MacMillan for a generative** workshop based on word-pooling. Come on out and bring your writing tools. We’ll have the open mic at the end instead this time so everyone can show off their new stuff – and this one will be an extended open, meaning 5-10 minutes instead of the regular 1-5: ZOMG!
