2017 POETRY WORKSHOP AND READINGS
The Poetry Café in Excelsior Springs was formed in connection with the Excelsior Springs Cultural Guild to encourage poets of all ages to write and share their poetry, learn more about poetry through classes, workshops and travel, and meet others who share their interest in poetry.
Each year on the last full weekend of April during the Gatsby Days Festival in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, the Poetry Café hosts a workshop and poetry reading. Our facilitator for 2017 will be Arlin Buyert. The poetry workshop will be held at Ventana Gourmet Grill.
