Poetry Performance Workshop with Bob Scanlan and Kevin Bowen

Join Warrior Writers at the Longfellow House - Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site for our last workshop of the season in the carriage house with BOB SCANLAN and KEVIN BOWEN. Bring a poem that you want to revise and perform.

Bob Scanlan, Artistic Director for the Poet's Theater at Harvard University, will lead this workshop on polishing and preforming poetry. To prepare for our reading on June 28th, he will give us insights and techniques for reading our work aloud.

Kevin Bown, author of Playing Basketball with the Viet Cong, will also be there to work with anyone who brings a peom that they're still polishing up.

Fred Marchant will join us for an encour revision workshop on the lawn around 7:30pm.

The National Historic Site preserves the home of Henry W. Longfellow, which also served as George Washington's headquarters during the Siege of Boston. In June, we'll finish the series with a public reading on the lawn in conjunction with our Warrior Writers Retreat in Boston with the Joiner Institute.
