SPEAKERS:   APRIL is National Poetry Month, and what better way to celebrate than with a panel of three unique and talented poets. Authors Shannon Bramer and Lana Button, and spoken word poet Wali Shah will discuss all things poetic — rhyme vs prose, the art of rhythms and patterns, where inspiration is found, and what compels one to be a poet.  Patricia Storms will moderate the discussion.

  • Meetings open with announcements by Members and Friends, followed by the meeting speakers, and then breakout rooms.
  • During the meeting, attendees use Chat to type questions and comments, which will be read aloud by the meeting coordinator. 
  • After the meeting, we can linger in breakout rooms to talk in smaller groups.
