The Spoke Workshop Series

National Poetry Month is around the corner, and The Tuxedo Project has one goal: Get at least one new poetry collection into YOUR hands.
Better yet, how about FIVE POETRY COLLECTIONS?
Beginning April 6, we’ll jumpstart your poetry library AND your writing goals with The Spoke Workshop Series, a special month-long event for readers and writers looking for a little beauty, a little funk, and a whole lot of wisdom from some of Detroit’s favorite writers. Each session, participants will receive master-level instruction from the the evening’s featured author, as they share the stories behind their publications’ most beloved pieces and dig into the theory and craft that made them possible. Writing prompts will be shared. Words will make it onto the page. And by the end of each session, you’ll have at least one group of words you just may dare call a "poem."

These workshops are FREE and open to readers and writers age 18+. Registrants attending at least 3 sessions receive one copy of each featured poetry collection, plus a surprise bonus title, available for immediate pick-up or to be mailed before the first session. Complimentary copies for participants attending fewer than 3 session are subject to availability.

All sessions take place via Zoom on Tuesdays and Wednesdays @ 6:30-9:00 p.m. Participants’ mini-libraries available for pick-up immediately or to be mailed by the first session.
