Date: Sunday, October 8th

Time: 1:30pm-2:15pm (Max: 15 participants)

Are you currently over the moon for someone? Are you a fangirl or fanboy who loves Doctor Who from afar? Can you go on and on (and on) about your new chocolate lab, that bag you got on sale (the smell of leather -- divine!) or a new pair of treat-yourself shoes? Whether it’s a person you love, or a favorite thing you can’t get enough of, join us for an ode-writing workshop! We’ll read a couple and write right away letting our hearts spill over onto the page.

All materials are included! You’ll leave with at least one ode under your belt, ready to read to the object of your affection.
