Tea, Poetry, & Tarot

Nothing goes better together than poetry and tea! Join your hosts Shirley Brewer and Chris Stewart for a poetry reading, workshop, cream tea, and tarot at Baltimore's new and wonderful tea room, Emma's Tea Spot in Hamilton.

The evening includes

An open mic poetry reading! Cream tea will be served as Chris and Shirley kick things off with their own poems, then participants are invited to read one of their own works. So bring a poem to share!

Shirley will guide you through an "I Am" poetry prompt inspired by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge's book: poemcrazy, freeing your life with words. Explore your poetic essence and your color personality. Come prepared to PLORK - Play + Work!!! Emphasis on play!

Chris will guide you through a tarot poem exercise based on a tarot or oracle card you choose from available decks. The imagery and mystery within tarot and poetry make them the perfect match! Together, everyone’s poems will make a tarot poem deck we will shuffle and from which everyone will choose a poem to learn their fortune. (Want to keep your original one? Make two—one to keep and one to share.)

During breaks and the last half hour of the evening, tarot reader Keenon Brice will give each attendee a brief reading on the tarot/oracle card they chose as inspiration.

SPACE IS LIMITED.

COST: $25.
