Award-winning Baker artist and internationally recognized choreographer Vincent Thomas hosts a Marvin Gaye inspired, community dance celebration. Perfect for beginners! Vincent leads you in an interactive social dance workshop themed around current conversations in Baltimore. Afterwards, grab a drink, nibble on energizing appetizers, and escape into the stunning collection and grand interior of The Peale Center, a 200-year old Baltimore gem and a National Historic Landmark. The Peale Center was the first building in the U.S. designed specifically as a museum, and the first public high school in the U.S. for African Americans.

Identifying mode in poems is a diagnostic and revision method that avoids one problem with a traditional workshop, an issue poet Natasha Saje calls, “arguing about paint color before the house is built.” In this workshop we define the four modes—lyric, narrative, argument, description—and read examples of each. Then we turn to participants’ poems, first identifying the dominant mode, and then asking whether the poem would be better served by a different one. Please bring copies of two poems that you’re unhappy with—you’ll choose one for discussion after you see Saje’s examples. Suitable for beginners and experienced poets alike.
