Join Salisbury Poet-in-Residence Christopher Salerno on Zoom for a Salisbury Poetry Week round-table critique session designed for advanced poets.  Participants will submit one poem on which they'd like editorial feedback and analysis once accepted.  This poem will be sent to all participants and Christopher Salerno ahead of time.  A rich round-table discussion centered around submitted poems will be held on Zoom on April 9th from 1:00-3:30 pm.

Please note: Very limited spaces available.  This workshop is open to the first ten poets who register for this event at which point registration will be closed. 

This workshop is free and open to the public due to generous grants from MD Humanities and The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore as well as support from Wicomico County Public Libraries, Eastern Shore Writers Association, Maryland Writers Association, and The City of Salisbury, Maryland.
