Frank Johnson has been active in the southwestern poetry scene for years but his passion is in working with budding authors. This workshop will be similar to one taught at Las Vegas's The Writer's Block, teaching young authors aged 8-12, how to use words to create poetic images. At the end of the session, they can share their work in a literary reading on the stage for a generous and supportive audience.
Because this workshop has limited space, we are asking participants to register on a first come, first served basis through EventBrite. This workshop is FREE but must use our registration process to reserve a space and when it is full, will go to a waiting list.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This workshop is limited to young poets who are age 8 or higher. We find that most poets over the age of 12 may be more comfortable in one of the middle grade workshops.
What can I bring into the event?
Bring your favorite notebook and a few pens and pencils. Food and drink is not allowed inside the auditorium however there is a water fountain and a vending machine area/cafeteria within the facility.
