Mahal Poetry Workshop with Meta Sarmiento
March 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0
In Filipino (Tagalog), depending on how and when you say it, the word “mahal” can mean two things: love or expensive. In this writing workshop, we explore the role that love plays in our own cultures and weigh what that might cost. Come write and eat some bomb Filipino food with us!
