Poetry Writing Class

Poetry Writing Class

Through our regular poetry writing classes, Tenderloin residents and members of the homeless community meet weekly to develop their writing skills and express their challenges, hopes, and visions. Their work provides a unique insight into their lives, the community in which we live, and the humanity we all share.
