I went to the first meeting of the Fall 2015 poetry workshop at Cave Canem. I love the location. It is so spacious. We sat around a rectangular table. There were ten of us. We read a handout we were given. We did a little bit of writing. Cave Canem reminds me of a taking a Poetry class at the Downtown Trenton campus of Mercer County Community College (my alma mater). I am so happy. I did the short assignment for this week and I’m looking forward to this Thursday’s workshop.
