traveling poetry classes in april 2018: a lil' bit of celebrating national poetry month by water & rocks.

ahem. hurrahhhhh for april. we'll be celebrating national poetry month in my traveling poetry class. this will involve two water-and-rocks-loving excursions: a trip to st. peter's villlage in chester county and a return to our cherished hideaway spot along the schuylkill river in pottstown, and hopefully it'll be warm and sunny after this snowy march. that's a very serious hopefully.

any topics of creative writing are welcome for sharing and workshopping during class by those who attend, but we have inspirational topics as prompt ideas, too. please bring a few copies to share with other students, if you can, for anything you write and want to practice reading as well as discussing. but just having your original copy to read from is okay, if that's easier for the writer.

next classes–

when: sunday, april 15 @ 1 p.m. & sunday, april 29 at @ 1 p.m.

where: for april 15, (before heading to the rocks) the parking lot across the street the inn at st. peter's village at 3471 st. peters road,  st. peter's, pa 19470 or elverson, pa 19520 depending on the maps site you use or your GPS unit; for april 29, (prior to riverside moments) the parking lot of 140 college drive, pottstown, pa 19464

*i'll also be teaching a free poetry-collaging workshop at culture den in st. peter's village this same day from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. more news will be posted on that event soon.

  1. It's now looking good for our trip to the river at Pottstown, Sunday April 29. Sunny and bright, high around 60. Spring enough for me (with a jacket for back-up). Yay!
