    1:00 pmThe Echo Park Branch Library - 1410 W Temple St, Los Angeles, CA 90026

    I'm excited to report that I've been invited back to the Echo Park Branch Library to lead the Aphasia Poetry Workshop! This eight-week course will meet every Tuesday afternoon in the community room of the Library from 1:0o pm to 4:00 pm. Participants DO NOT have to start at the beginning. The group can be joined at any time. If you’re a writer currently dealing with Aphasia, join us. Bring a pen and a sense of adventure.  We’ll find the words together.

    11:00 amCamera oscura Art Lab - 1450 Ocean Ave Santa Monica, CA

    December's theme is, 'Repeat After Me.' Are you writing the same poem over and over? Do you feel you need to break out of a rut? Before you try anything drastic, spend the morning with me. The universe may be trying to tell you something! Don't take any vows or abandon good work for the sake of vanity. There may be a way to reinvigorate your art AND address the heart's unfinished business. All levels welcome.

    Registration is strongly encouraged! Visit Camera Obscura here -  http://smgov.net/camera

    I can't believe I get to come back to this enduring series. The wondrous Alice Pero has long curated this essential series. I suspect I'll be joined by at least one other surprise guest. And then there's always YOU! Bring your own poems and read with me!
