CANCELLED: Spring Poetry Festival: Craft Talk with Brian G. Gilmore

Wed, April 1, 2020 3:00 PM at LookOut Gallery, 362 Bogue Street, East Lansing

Due to Michigan State University's move to online classes, our Spring Poetry Festival is being postponed.

On March 11, MSU announced that in-person classes are suspended and are moving to virtual instruction until April 20. The full announcement may be viewed here.

We are working with our scheduled visiting poets to reschedule their appearances here in most cases to Fall 2020, and will update our events calendar as these are confirmed.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this. Stay safe, friends!

Brian G. Gilmore will kick off our Spring Poetry Festival with an afternoon craft talk.
