Sarah and I are running a workshop near Lincoln at the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center April 23rd (which is ALSO “Talk Like Shakespeare Day,” in case you were wondering). Sarah will lead a workshop for adults while I work with kids, followed by a reading on the prairie.

RomaniaMatt was in Romania for programs in Bucharest, Craiova, and Drobeta Turnu Severin, working with high school and college students on poetry writing and performance, leading to a poetry slam at the end of each city’s visit.
