Write with us! Tonight!

Poet Reuben Jackson and Teaching Artist Alex Muck team up for a magical night of Sounds and Singularities, a special YWP online writing salon on the powerful connection between music and poetry – Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021, 6:30-8 PM EST. SIGN UP HERE!

DETAILS: Sign up here for your Zoom invitation to this free and fun writing salon (party) with your hosts Reuben and Alex! (Must have a YWP account to participate.) We'll write together, listen, share if we want to, offer supportive feedback and enjoy the music of poetry! No prerequisite required. If you've been with us before, welcome back! The day before the event, you will receive your invitation by email with your link to join and instructions about what to bring: something to write with, a sense of humor, and snacks.
