Poetry readings and workshops


Karen Head and I will do another Call & Response reading for Poetry Atlanta and Georgia Center for the Book on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 7:15 p.m. at the Decatur Library. We'll be reading our poetry round-robin style selecting poems on the fly to find common themes, moods and imagery. It’s a fun, experimental and unexpected evening of poetry because we have no idea what's coming next. The event is free and open to the public.

If you're interested in learning more about the craft of poetry and you live on the southside of Atlanta, you might want to sign up for my fall workshop at the Peachtree City Library on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a generative workshop and we'll specifically be discussing and writing confessional and prose poetry. More details and registration information at this link.

The reissue of Better To Travel is taking a little bit longer than expected. It was supposed to be ready for the Decatur Book Festival, but it's now looking like October. There will definitely be copies available during the 11th annual Voices Carry reading on Nov. 30. And you might want to mark that date on your calendar since it's going to be a fantastic lineup: Theresa Davis, Michelle Castleberry, Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor and Cecilia Woloch. You'll be sick of turkey and relatives by then, so come out to the Decatur Library to hear these fine poets.
