Please resister at the door at 1:45 pm. There is a small $10 charge to cover the cost of endless coffee and sweet treats. Participants will craft a poem on the spot drawing inspiration from one of three images from Russell Kuecker's show "Heroes". The hour long workshop begins at 2:00 pm. Then, travel a short way up US-1 for “St. Augustine Speaks”, a community open microphone gathering held at City Coffee Company (1280 N. Ponce de Leon Blvd, near the Village Inn).
