On the Road Again - Portland Workshop and Reading with Kelli Agodon
Kelli Russell Agodon and I will be headed to Portland this Tuesday for a workshop and reading. Would love to see you there. And of course we will also be visiting Voodoo Doughnuts Wed morning - for eating (not reading).
We'll be at In Other Words Bookstore, Tuesday, April 17th, reading at 7 p.m.
We're also offering a workshop at 3 p.m.
Workshop Details: Two Sides to the Poet’s Life: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Submitting to a Literary Journal & Writing Ekphrastic Poems: Award winning poets Kelli Russell Agodon & Susan Rich come together for an inspiring class on both submitting and writing poems. As editors, co-directors of the Poets on the Coast Retreat, and poets themselves Susan and Kelli will share a behind-the-scenes look at submitting to literary journals and tips to help you get your work accepted. They will also work with participants to generate new ekphrastic poems–new work inspired by art. This is a rare opportunity to explore both sides of the creative life–submissions & inspiration. All levels of poets welcome–from beginning to published.
Cost is $50 and you can register here. The reading at 7:00 PM is FREE and open to the public.
