Fold-It Short Poetry Workshop-Tue 10/21,7pm SLT 

This week the Short Poetry Workshop will be doing a fun group poem called Fold-It. Each person participates in creating a poem by writing one verse and passing it to their neighbor. Except- you only get to see the one line written prior to yours. You won’t know what the poem is about until it’s done! So join us to learn, write and share the Fold-It poem.

    How to handle a Hypergrid address 

    From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
    If you get a address that looks like this: 
    hg.francogrid.org:80:Residence-09:/119/128/190 it may take you to the exact coordinates if you paste it into the address bar of Firestorm
