Local Poet Tony Plocido (http://www.mentalvalley.com/) leads this monthly workshop where poets can practice performing their own work. Each poet should come armed with a few pieces to read, copies to share, paper and pen for note taking. Leave your fear and trepidation behind. This workshop is meant to build confidence in performance and bring nuance to the way you present your work to the world. You may bring other people's work. Again, this is a performance workshop, not a writing workshop. We just want you to learn how to perform your poetry, instead of just reading it.
