Just how big is a dinosaur’s egg? And how many six-year-olds could a T-Rex eat? Immerse yourself in a time when dinosaurs walked the earth and get Cretaceously creative by writing your own dino poem. Join us for an interactive reading and workshop led by Richard O’Brien, editor of The Emma Press anthology DRAGONS OF THE PRIME: Poems About Dinosaurs.
