Poetry Workshop with Paulann Petersen (04-27-13)

I had the exceptional opportunity to attend a poetry writing workshop with Paulann Petersen, as part of the Milwaukie Poetry Series, and for the benefit of the Oregon Cultural Trust. While I find it difficult to write on a specific designated subject, this served as a personal reminder to keep on writing poetry.
