Every first Tuesday in 2019, nohopoco will be bringing you a special poet to lead a generative workshop. After the workshop, our guest poet gives a private reading of their own work. In April we are honored to have Sara Mae teach a workshop called Ghost Tour: Taking Inventory of What Haunts Us.

Sara Mae is a kitchen witch and community organizer raised in Baltimore and based in Boston. She is the 2017 IWPS rep for Slam Free or Die, a 2018 Emerson College CUPSI team member, and a 2018 Boston Poetry Slam NPS team member. She is the Executive Director of the Feminine Empowerment Movement Slam (FEMS) Organization. Her work can be found in Tinderbox, Peach Mag, Breakwater Review and elsewhere. Her first chapbook, Priestess of Tankinis is out via Game Over Books. She believes in the magic of blue bicycles and orange lipstick. If she could go to dinner with any famous person, she wouldn't care who it was as long as there was Old Bay on the food.

Spots in the workshop are reserved in advance through our online system. $10. Low/no-fee spots available. Please contact us if you have questions.

Bring a notebook/writing utensil or a laptop. We’ll be writing!
