Roaring Out

Roaring Out

By Michelle Greco
Pennsylvania poet and artist Michelle Greco talks about all elements of visual art and the written word, with occasional guests. She may even read her own works in progress from time to time. There will be humor and resources and takeaways (Michelle is a teacher, so she loves sharing info in exciting ways). There will be cursing and deep thoughts (Michelle is an artist, so in keeping with the stereotype, she has to be somewhat troubled, right?). There will also be fun and possibly cake (Michelle likes people, so she wants ya'll to stick around. Plus, who wants to be around a bore?).
