Eight Forty-Eight

Pouring everyday struggles and realities into poetry

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. For WBEZ, Melissa Townsend offers a sense of what it's like to be a part of the action.
