Tree Workshops

As part of the rejigging of Tree reading series, the feature readers are going to go on youtube where they can be archived and viewed from wherever poetry wants to be seen.
IMG_3032 There will be theory talks before the feature reader. Susan McMaster did the first, I did the most recent one [see pic insert]. Roland Prevost, Max Middle, then November 24th, Dean Steadman will be the next special invitation speakers.
The open mic will continue to start at 8 p.m. in the Arts Court at 2 Daly Ave on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Starting the next session there will also be a front end workshop running from 6:45 to 7:45 on writing. Who will give the workshops will shift every 3 or 4 sessions.
Oct 13, 23rd, Nov. 10 and 24th I’ll be faciliating workshops on poetry, focusing around authorship, device and audience. These are free supplements to series to encourage thinking about craft.
[And personally I hope next season will do a repeat of a session focussed on past poets, like the night of tributes to A.M. Klein. We’ll have to wait and see what 2010 holds.]
