Our big featured reading this month is Triptych
on June 9th with the extraordinary Jasmine Cuffee who will be performing along side Sari Krosinsky, who has just had a book picked up for publication, and Sarah McKinstry-Brown, who is back to visit from Nebraska. A stellar line-up. We also have a workshop for "writing for nonviolence" with Stewart Warren, our usual Monday night East of Edith
open mics, and another P(EAR) craft talk with a poet who has just moved to town, John Survivor Blake. (I'll be speaking then also.) And if you are interested in a workshop with Sarah McKinstry-Brown, reserve a spot by writing localpo...@yahoo.com
. It'll be this Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm, if there's enough interest to
make it happen. I also will need to send directions before the class, so be in touch. For now I'm trying to make all of our events run on a donation, sliding scale, pass the hat kind of basis. We appreciate your support and will try to keep things accessible.
So here goes the details of what's up this June from the Local Poets Guild.
Thanks everyone who came out to events last month: you can find recaps of Verso Quatro and P(EAR) and the open mic at our blog http://localpoetsguild.wordpress.com
. Feel free to send me info to post on the calendar with some lead time, and I'm also happy to cross promote for other poetry events on our blog, so write me if you need to be in touch. Thanks also to Rich Boucher for his help! In a couple weeks I'll send another note and let you know about what's in the works and some exciting things to look forward to in late
summer and fall, and more opportunities!
