One thought on “#ArtLitPhx: Friday Poetry with Jeredith Merrin at Changing Hands”
The first poetry workshop I ever took was with Jeredith a few years back, and it was wonderful. She really is a poet through and through, and a very knowledgeable instructor as well. She also loves jazz! I’m so bummed I didn’t see this post until just now or I would have gone to see her.
