Join Ebony Stewart (award-winning poet & top touring artist) in discussion about touring, agencies, and performance. Feel free to ask questions and get answers from Ebony Stewart's perspective about the what and how of being on the college market, the demand, and expectations. Once time permits, we will shift the space and put energy into the performance side of things where poets are allowed to ask questions and workshop any (1) poem of their choice.
