Poetry in the Methow

Poetry Workshops – Thurs. May 10, 5:30 – 7PM With Judy Kleinberg & Paul Newlson

Register for a two-part workshop with visiting poets Judy Kleinberg and Paul Nelson.  The evening will start with Postcards, American Sentences and Epistles, led by Paul Nelson. In this generative workshop, participants will be given some examples of poetry forms, including poetry postcards, the 17 syllable poems Allen Ginsberg called American Sentences and the epistle as practiced by Ted Kerrigan and other poets.  They will also be led through the process of writing these forms.

The evening continues with Judy Kleinberg.  She introduces a fun and fast-paced, hands-on session.  Judy will introduce three techniques for creating found poems.  Some materials will be provided, but a writing notebook, marking & writing pens, sturdy paper, scissors, junk mail, magazines you’re willing to cut up, and glue sticks will be welcome.  No previous poetry experience required.

Location: Weagant Studio, Twisp, WA.  To register/contact Methow Arts, Info@methowartsalliance.org  509-997-4004.  

FEE: By donation  – sliding scale $5 – $15.
