If you were affected by the 2017 Mendocino County wildfires, we invite you to tell your story or express your experience in poetry with us in a series of writing workshops presented by three Ukiah Poets Laureate. Participants will have the opportunity to share their writings developed at these workshops at events planned for October in participation with Out of the Ashes, a community project organized by local artists, fire survivors, and other individuals who have come together to respond to the wildfires with community arts projects.
