a poetry-collaging workshop at culture den in st. peter's villlage: more workshops are scheduled from may to august 2018.

a week ago, i co-hosted a poetry-collaging workshop with culture den in st. peter's village. we had such great feedback from those who joined us that several folks requested for us to host this workshop monthly. so we'll be offering it on last sundays of the month from may through august from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

the dates are—

may 27 - june 24 - july 29 - august 26

enjoy some collaging-scenes below in bringing some worthy attention to national poetry month.
















a poetry reading to introduce nur alima schieBeare's first book at oley valley community library.

last saturday, oley valley community library hosted a poetry reading for nur alima schieBeare's first book, journey to the beloved, published in recent months by foothills publishing based in southwestern new york, a small family-run poetry press which has released the works of a good number of poets in berks county. 

(celebrating national poetry month)

nur alima is known for her part in first thursday poetry open mics hosted by berks bards and has a deep magic in her language, even more so when she reads than when you see her words on the page. there may be a video from the poetry reading to update in this post later. stay tuned.
