Mighty Mike McGee's workshop will focus on stretching comfort zones and pushing our own boundaries in writing and performance, while pursuing a greater, deeper voice. Focus will be on performing the poem. This course is open to people who are 13 years and older. Only $25! But bring your own sack lunch, paper and pencil.
