What to Know about Our Poetry Session 10.17.13

The outline and plan for Poetry Nite at Rippavilla

I look forward to our second meeting of poets this Thursday night, October 17, 2013.

* I'll do a brief teaching about where ideas for poetry come from. You are surrounded by poetic prompts daily. We'll talk about how to recognize them and develop them. Plenty of examples will be given.

* I'm inviting Danielle and Karen to share some of their impressions and practical takeaways from the poetry workshop they attended recently during the Middle Tennessee Writers Conference. Karen Aldridge was quite enthusiastic about the session and what she learned from esteemed poet Bill Brown.

* I invite you to bring a recent or not-so-recent original poem to share with the group. 

* As we close I'll explain and make some poetry writing assignments. It will be a few months before our next poets gathering so I want to give you some seed and fertilizer to take with you.
