Radical Poetry Workshop at The Bloom Collective Saturday

Radical Poetry Workshop
Sat. Jan  29 2-5 p.m.

T he Bloom Collective
671 Davis NW Grand Rapids
(Corner of 5th & Davis)
$3-$5 suggested donation

When members of The Bloom Collective began planning a Radical Poetry Workshop a few months ago, using a print depicting John Ross seemed like a logical choice for the event flyer. John passed away Jan. 17. Now, it seems only fitting that next Saturday’s event start off with video of him reading his works when he visited Grand Rapids in March 2010.

After the video presentation, The Bloom will share the works of other radical poets and lead a discussion about the importance of words to revolution. People who attend will be invited to share their own poems by reading them aloud, sharing copies or selling their poetry zines. The group might even do a little writing.

Folks who come are also invited to enjoy a potluck supper so bring a dish to pass. The Bloom will share vegan dishes. For  information, visit
