Not only do I have a poem displayed in the window of Julio's restaurant on State Street...
....but I am also teaching a free Modern Villanelle Writing Workshop on Saturday, April 12. Here is the program description:
Come learn about villanelles, and write your own!
“The villanelle is one of the most fascinating and paradoxical of poetic forms, quirky and edgy…prone to moods of obsession and delight; structured through the marriage of repetition and surprise… No wonder it is currently enjoying such a powerful, post-modernist blossoming,” from Villanelles: Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets.
We’ll read aloud examples by poets such as Sherman Alexie and Sylvia Plath to get inspired; then we’ll get busy creating our own villanelles. All levels and ages of writers are welcome.
Hayes Room, Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street | 10 AM
Hope to see you there!
