How will you celebrate National Poetry Month?
Poetry is an important part of my life. I will celebrate by teaching a Poetry Writing Class at Institute For Continuing Learning at Young Harris, Georgia. This is a small class for practicing poets only. We will meet for six weeks. I can think of no better way to celebrate poetry than to meet once a week with fellow poets and share our knowledge of poetry.
Lucky for me, I have also been invited to read my poems during this special month at POETS AND WRITERS READING POEMS AND STORIES at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown.
Later in the month I will attend The Evening of Art and Poetry sponsored by the Clay County Arts Council to be held at the Hayesville High School Lecture Hall. This year’s poetry judge and special guest is Robert S. King. This is an annual art and poetry contest which I co founded with Reba Beck twenty one years ago. I am happy to see it continue.
How do you celebrate National Poetry Month? Tell us.
