Studying the craft of poetry is a terrific way to increase your skill with language and your powers of concentration.
And it’s fun.
How To Make Poems comes out from Flip Learning on May 15. It’s a shiny new e-book, with audio lectures. If you teach creative writing, I hope you will consider adopting the book for your intro students.
Taking a letterpress workshop is the most fun I’ve had in ages. I loved considering every letter, the nature of every space, and all aspects of font, paper, ink. Print St. Pete is a community-based print shop offering workshops, studio space, and collaboration opportunities. Worth a trip! My counter-pose in response to AI: slow time-tested tools, natural intelligences. Balance.
Are you considering giving signed copies of poetry collections purchased from an amazing locally-owned bookstore as gifts this year? Pop into Tombolo. I would love to personalize and sign The Present State of the Garden or Field Notes from the Flood Zone or any of my titles for the reader or aspiring writer on your list. Send instructions on your order form. And thank you!
I’m honored to be the new director of our undergraduate and MFA creative writing programs at the University of South Florida. Know someone interested in studying with us? The deadline for applications for the graduate program is January 1. Please share! If folks have questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am downsizing and part of that process is selling books. I have a limited number of copies of each of my titles and I would love to sign, personalize, and mail books out to you! Signed books make great gifts.
New poetry collection arrives October 1, 2021 and making friends with poems.
