In honor of National Poetry Month, Eight Forty-Eight has been showcasing poems from everyday people with a passion for writing.You may have seen Betsy Benefield around town, but Chicago is a big, busy city. Everyday we encounter people we’re likely to never actually meet.
April is National Poetry Month. Over the next month, Eight Forty-Eight will celebrate by bringing you poems written by local everyday people. The series kicks off with a selection from The Neighborhood Writing Alliance. The group runs a network of writing workshops around the city.
