traveling poetry classes in october 2017 at the rocks at st. peter's villlage & the dunkin' donuts in limerick.

october's traveling poetry classes will bring in some of the natural world before warmer weather ends and then some coffee shop arena space to start a dive into appreciating the works of u.s. poet laureates.

during the first class of the month, we'll visit the rocks at st. peter's village in chester county. if the weather isn't ideal, we will go into st. peter's bakery which is also a bit like a café. we'll meet at the big parking lot across the street from the bakery, which is in front of the rocks.

during the second class of the month, we'll read poems by former u.s. poet laureate ted kooser who served in his position from 2004 to 2006.

we're back to sunday afternoons twice a month.

at either class, any other subject is always welcome for the sharing, including other variations of creative writing, too. we pick out the poetry in whatever we read and hear. bringing a few copies of your writings to share is helpful so everyone can read them or share. but just having your original copy to read from is okay, too.

if we ever have oddly inconvenient weather before or during set outdoor classes, i will update those who RSVPed to classes in advance to let them know if we are canceling, rescheduling, or relocating.

if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at poetrywithjenniferhetrick at yahoo dot com.

and if you know anyone who may be interested in our class, feel free to share this blog content onward.

also, if there is anyone who may want to join our class but lives in another area across berks, chester, and montgomery counties, we sometimes travel to a good variety of different places, so let us know, and we can see about planning classes closer to you.
