May’s Book Group Guest Ann Applegarth

We had a wonderful poetry workshop with Ann Applegarth!

The theme was (appropriately) books!

We wrote short poems, silly poems, poems with a “famous opening line” as a prompt.

I will share more about the workshop, however, if you attend the meeting please post your poems!
