Today I attended the poetry workshop of Tom Roby and Jenene Ravesloot. It was amazing! There were several people who have written poetry for a while and also some complete newcomers. We used the hub and spoke method of putting ideas down. We freewrote for as long as we needed while Tom and Jenene walked around helping us. Then we tried to discern what the words were trying to tell us, with more advice from Tom and Jenene. I highly recommend you attend their next workshop on April 12, 2014 at the Sulzer Public Library from 1 to 3 PM. It's 4455 N. Lincoln Avenue and I learned today that the parking meters stop north of Montrose. Free on the street parking! Woot! How often does that happen? There is a good Pub on the corner on Montrose and Lincoln also. I had a good brunch with lots of interesting people to write about.
