Content’s Craft Talks: Michael Bazzett

Content is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with our friends at the Grand Event Center: Content’s Craft Talks! In this occasional series, we’ll host a beloved author at the Grand to talk shop: the writing process, how to hone your craft, and their own individual writing expertise. Whether you want to write books or just love reading them, you’ll want to be there.


We’re delighted to welcome poet and Carleton alum Michael Bazzett back to Northfield for the first of Content’s Craft Talks during National Poetry Month. Join us at the Grand Event Center on Wednesday, April 10th at 7 pm.
