Poetry workshop

Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to say that we already have six applications for my poetry workshop this year.  Now that the holidays are behind us, folks are focusing on other matters and I’m glad to be one of those matters. I don’t want to beat this to death but I hope you’ll make your decision before long if you’ve been considering the opportunity. Normally, there’s a last minute flurry and sometimes these small group workshops fill early. For further information you can contact Jo Lloyd at Highlights. Here’s how. Jo.LLoyd@highlightsfoundation.org .

If you’d like to see the workshop description, here’s that link. http://www.highlightsfoundation.org/workshops/poetry-for-the-delight-of-it .

I’m especially proud to tell you that I have three guests this year: Boyds Mills poetry editor Rebecca Davis, U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis, and actress/poet/performance teacher Renee LaTulippe.

It’s a grand lineup and I look forward to working with friends old and new.



Poetry workshop next June


Recently I mentioned that I’ll do a three-day poetry workshop next June in Honesdale, Pennsylvania as part of Hightlights Foundation’s series of Founders Workshops. The information is up now at this link: http://www.highlightsfoundation.org/pages/current/FWsched_preview.html

For specific information about my workshop, scroll down to this and click on my name. It would be great to see some of you there. Workshops fill up quickly because there is only room for ten or twelve people.

Somebody Ought to Write a Poem
Workshop Leader: David Harrison

We leave in the morning for a week in Florida. I’ll take my laptop but you never know how much will get done on a family trip. Look forward to seeing Nancy Gow next Wednesday, the 21st, as my next Guest Reader. Gary Dulabaum is coming up soon as a Featured Friday Guest, maybe as soon as next week.

I hope that everyone is having a good summer.
