Alex Grant can’t make it to the 11/13 Poetry Hickory, but Joseph Mills will still be there, and he will still present his workshop on “Wielding a Knife” (revision in poetry). With just one featured writer, I’m expanding the Open Mic segment a bit (plus I have a couple of poems I’m dying to read).
So, here is the schedule for the day:
4:00 Wielding a Knife Workshop with Joseph Mills ($10 per person; contact Scott Owens at 828-234-4266 to register)
5:30 Open Mic: Scott Owens, Nancy Posey, Helen Losse, Mel Hager, Versus (student performance group from St. Stephens High School)
6:30 Featured Writer: Joseph Mills
In other news, the December 11 Poetry Hickory will be a big one with featured writers M. Scott Douglass (editor of Main Street Rag) and Jonathan K. Rice (editor of Iodine Poetry Journal) as well as a whole bunch of people reading from the new Best of Poetry Hickory 2012 (available for the first time at the reading). I’ll follow up with a list of readers and a modified start time a bit later.
I will be doing a 5-hour workshop called “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Writing Poetry” at Taste Full Beans from 10:00 to 3:00 on Saturday, November 10. Registration is $50 per person. Contact me at 828-234-4266 for details or to register.
It’s looking like we will have a haiku workshop and reading with current Haiku Society of America president Ce Rosenow and former president Lenard Moore from 5:00 to 7:00 on Monday, December 17, also at Taste Full Beans. Registration will be $10 per person. Contact me at 828-234-4266 to register. More details will follow.
