I got in to Cave Canem three times if I get in this Spring of 2016. I got in last Fall ’14 and this Fall ’15. I attended all 8 sessions of the workshop this Fall ’15. I could not attend the workshop last Fall ’14. I applied for a workshop to start in February of 2016 and I hope to get in again…

I applied to Cave Canem for the third time for a poetry workshop. I am going to turn 35 right before the poetry workshop starts in February 2016.  This will be the second Cave Canem poetry workshop I have attended. It has 8 sessions that begin in February and end in April. We will meet every Wednesday starting on February 17, 2016. Our Final Reading is on April 13, 2016. I’m excited and I don’t plan to miss one session. I’m taking the train by myself again like I did this Fall ’15. I’m planning on  inviting my parents to the Final Reading in April. April is National Poetry Month.
