Road Trip on the Horizon - You Come, Too!


If it's April it must be National Poetry Month but what happens the rest of the year? You can keep the wild momentum of poetry writing well into May by attending  a workshop at In Other Words in Portland. Have you ever watched Portlandia? This is "that" bookstore!

Kelli Russell Agodon and I will travel to Portland to give a reading at the Press Club on Wednesday night, May 21st and then facilitate our only Portland writing workshop on Friday, May 23rd. Whether you live in Portland or think a spring road trip sounds alluring, this generating new work and learning about publication might just be for you.


Kelli and I plan on doing our part

The Details:

WHEN: FRIDAY, MAY 23, 2014, NOON - 3 PM

WHERE: IN OTHER WORDS BOOKSTORE, PORTLAND, OR

WHO: ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN WRITING POEMS

(beginner to well‐published  author)

HOW MUCH: $86 (includes a free chapbook for each participant)

This class is designed for all levels of poets utilizing different writing exercises
including working from the visual arts to help kick-start new poems. Enjoy creative
prompts that help you move deeper into your writing. You will learn new strategies to
create poems and by doing so, push your writing to new places. We will wrap-up the
afternoon with a salon-style discussion of poetry publication. In addition, each poet
will leave with a new listing of poetry journals and a chapbook of poems.
