2nd Wednesday, 11 – 12:30 This program is for anyone who enjoys poetry. There will be opportunities to read, recite and write. Best Words, Best Order is the title of a collection of essays by the poet Stephen Dobyns which in just those four well chosen words perfectly describes what a poet aspires to when putting a poem together. Writing poetry is spills and thrills for the beginner and expert too. There are countless small pitfalls but sometimes in the writing something happens, an ah ha moment where the poet feels he/she can say or almost say precisely what’s needs to be said. Think about how a joke works, it’s a little like that. Registration Required.
