Description:  For poets, the craft should always come first. However, there usually comes a point at which many poets want to reach an audience and share their poetry. Robert Lee Brewer’s “How to Build an Audience for Your Poetry” workshop will focus on strategies poets can employ to build an audience around their poetry. The workshop will cover everything from submitting poems to using social media and blogging to connect with other poets and publishers.
