Jason at Poet’s and Writer’s Live: Inspiration SF (1/10/15)


I got the opportunity to be a panelist at this event, representing Kearny Street Workshop at the  RESOURCES FOR WRITERS IN SAN FRANCISCO AND THE ROLE OF COMMUNITY panel. Here I am trying to look astute. Thanks to Poets and Writer’s magazine for inviting me to speak and I hope anyone who attended got something out of me being there.
