A Poetic Exploratory w/ Dick Brown

November 12, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

$20 – $25

What is a poem?
Our time together will be an exploratory of the poem: its origins and evolution, its purposes, its forms and surprises, and, above all, its great powers and pleasures.

We will explore how a poem is constructed to gain its specific reason for being.

Since poems are often questions more than answers, open discussion will be highly valued.

(Handouts will be made available)

Bring a favorite poem to share.

Dick Brown is a long-time explorer of poetry. The first poetry group he attended was in 1965 in Brooklyn Heights, NY, around the corner from where Walt Whitman self-published Leaves of Grass.

Dick attended the Squaw Valley Writers’ Conference and the Napa Valley Writers’ Conference several times.  He a founder of the Marin Poet Laureate Program and the monthly poetry reading for the Marin Board of Supervisors.
