When: Thursday, October 15, 2015 from 7:00-8:00 PM
Where: The Cabin, 801 S Capitol Blvd, Boise, ID 83705
Why: K-12 teachers throughout the Treasure Valley are invited to The Cabin for an evening of poetry and conversation about teaching creative reading and writing. A professional teaching-writer from The Cabin’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program will lead guests through an experiential poetry writing lesson, adaptable for students of all ages.

Our goal is to share The Cabin’s craft-based, hands-on approach to teaching creative writing. Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided.
