A Poet’s Favorite Walk—The Pipeline

Meet at the overlook, near the parking lot at S. 12th St.
Saturday, April 29, 1pm

We’re re-vamping the old “Poetry in Abandoned Spots & Forgotten Spaces” this year to a newer, hipper, more streamlined version of itself. The idea, though, is the same: small group events in inspiring, iconic locations get to know each other and the city a little more intimately.

Our 2017 PFP season starts at the Pipeline, a Richmond river gem & poet fave. Rain location is the nearby Casa Del Barco, 320 S. 12th St., RVA 23219. RSVP is requested. Please check out full details and future locations on our Facebook page!

Urban FarmhouseMonday night small group critique and workshop series continues!

Other Monday nights of the month are given to hour-and-a-half critique groups at the Urban Farmhouse in Shockoe Slip, year-round. Confused? See the page headed Monday night words: workshops and critique for monthly schedule and details. All levels of writing experience welcome!
