The Springfed Writers & Music Series
will take place every fourth Wednesday, January through April.
Organized and hosted by John D. Lamb,
a Royal Oak resident and founder/director of Springfed Arts, a non-profit arts organization. Springfed Arts’ mission since its founding over 20 years ago is, “To educate and inspire folks in the craft of writing, be it prose or song, the performance of works, spoken or sung.” Each month Lamb will present a variety of poets, writers and songwriters. He hopes to attract a diverse audience from teens to older adults.
Springfed Arts also produces literary and songwriting retreats in Northern Michigan and administers poetry and creative writing classes in the Metro Detroit area. To read more about events produced by Lamb and Springfed Arts, visit springfed.org
