    I'm excited to report that I've been invited back to the Echo Park Branch Library to lead the Aphasia Poetry Workshop! This eight-week course will meet every Tuesday afternoon in the community room of the Library from 1:0o pm to 4:00 pm. Participants DO NOT have to start at the beginning. The group can be joined at any time. If you’re a writer currently dealing with Aphasia, join us. Bring a pen and a sense of adventure.  We’ll find the words together.
