    “Poetry is a means of seeing invisible things and saying unspeakable things about them.”
    – Howard Nemerov

    “If there is a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
    -Toni Morrison

    This creative summer class will meet every day, six days a week for writing, reading, discussion, games, field trips and more. We’ll examine some older voices and discover a few emerging ones, including your own. You will create new work using college-level prompts, apply professional tools for editing, learn how to submit work to publishers, and cultivate a performance.

    You will produce an anthology of new writing with your fellow students and participate in a live reading. Bring notebooks, writing instruments and a few examples of writers you enjoy. You’ll also have plenty of access to computers, reference material, and dreams.

    We're going to write up a storm! Register HERE!

    I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY OF POETS! And I'm so grateful to my friend, poet Myra Dutton for inviting me back every summer. Please join me in beautiful Idyllwild California for an evening of music, art, and poetry. If you haven't experienced 'Beat Nite' at Middle Ridge, you're in for a treat! I'll be joined by a host of local poets and I encourage you to bring a poem of your own. The whole shebang lasts about two hours, so you'll still have plenty of moonlight left afterward. No entry fee. Snacks and refreshments (and WINE!) available for purchase. See you there!
