Description

"Someday I'll Love ______ : Odes To Self" is a 2-hour workshop led by Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib. Using the poems "Katy" by Frank O'Hara, "Someday I'll Love Roger Reeves" by Roger Reeves, and "Someday I'll Love Ocean Vuong" by Ocean Vuong, Willis-Abdurraqib will teach you how to write a love poem to yourself.

  • Space is very limited
  • All participants must have a ticket in advance.
  • The workshop begins at 10am sharp at the Betsy-South Beach hotel on 4/2/17.
  • Please check in at the main lobby by 9:45am.
  • Parking at the Betsy is valet-only and it is expensive. We recommend using the municipal garage on 13th and Collins or looking for street parking. (On a Sunday morning, it won't be too bad.)
  • Tickets are non-refundable within 48 hours of the start of the workshop
