Once again I want to thank J. Patrick Lewis and Renee La Tulippe for being my special Skype guests during the Poetry for the Delight of It workshop and to poetry editor Rebecca Davis for making a personal appearance at The Barn and giving a presentation on what an editor looks for in poetry.
Next year’s workshop has now been set for September 29-October 2 and I’m delighted to announce that my Skype guests will be Jane Yolen http://janeyolen.com/biography
and Kenn Nesbitt http://www.poetryfoundation.org/children/poet-laureate.
Kenn, as you know, followed Pat Lewis as the National Children’s Poet Laueate. Jane is, well, Jane!
The program isn’t quite completed yet. I expect to have a segment on performance poetry but don’t have all the pieces in place. I’m still waiting on this year’s valuations to see if I need to add other segments.
As before, my cutoff number is fifteen. I hope to see the quota reached early, maybe by the end of this year, and am aware of some who have already indicated their intentions to register. I hope you’ll let others who might be interested know about the date and guests.
