November, 2013 – I become a Writer-in-Residence!

This November I’m becoming a Writer-in-Residence at Big Blue Marble Bookstore, the center of Northwest Philly literary life! I’ll be offering craft talks, workshops, and writing classes for 6th-12th grade students.

My first offering is “The Art of Craft,” a series of craft talks and workshops for poets, poetry fans, and writing teachers. The first four topics we’ll take on are: How a Poem Means, Spines and Joints, Measuring Meter, and Walking the Line. For more information, go to: The Art of Craft Series

Please share this with writers and teachers you know. Great poetry has been obscured by bad poetry teaching for far too long! Long live the new Poets-Teaching-Poetry Resistance!
