Covid-19 has made many in-person events difficult, but in its place, the online world has exploded with virtual gatherings. Many events that were previously location specific, have opened their doors to audiences and participants from the global community. It’s a wonderful way to feel connected during a time of physical isolation.
Poetry Foundation Events & Workshops:
There are many wonderful upcoming online events hosted by the Poetry Foundation. Visit their website for details – I’m signed up for a bunch of January workshops, and I can’t wait!
