We offer a Poetry & Prose Workshop on the third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. to Noon in the Reading Room. The workshop is free and open to all serious poets who want to develop their work and accept meaningful critique in a small circle of area writers. This workshop is led by author/illustrator E. Barrie Kavasch, who has published four books of poetry, her most recent volume is ShamanSongs: Life ShapeShifting Into Poetry. Our seasons and years of poetry in the library continue to expand and explore new ideas. The Poetry & Prose Circle grows more intriguing as we delve into the sensory virtues of poetry and the musical cadences possible in some prose forms. Easy writing for beginners as well as seasoned poets. Bring your journal and pen and some of your recent writing and join us. We will read, critique, and inspire.
