About the Event
Gotahold Brewing has chosen the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) as their #TipsforTransformation benefactor during the month of April, which is National Poetry Month. Poetry Happy Hours will be held at 5:30 pm every Thursday in the Beer Garden at Gotahold to benefit the WCDH scholarship fund and celebrate the beauty and art of poetry. On Thursday, April 29, at 5:30 pm poet Kristin Hunt will move the audience with her thoughtful, inspiring poetry.

It’s a privilege to be able to share the poetry of such diverse, dynamic, and engaging poets with the Eureka Springs community and visitors.
