Roberto Ascalon Pre Grand Slam Workshop says
Want to shake up your writing? Looking at novel ways of writing poetry for the slam, 2015 Seattle Grand Slam headliner Roberto Ascalon will lead a workshop designed to inspire poems that have never been seen before. He’ll focus on using language in new ways to challenge the slam form (and we love a good challenge). Roberto’s hope is that you come out of this workshop with the tools to create poems that are rich, fresh, and unorthodox. Catch his workshop and then come see him at the Grand Slam on May 2!
