Bring Pencil and Paper! (Pen Okay, Too)

My most important news today is reminding everyone about Thursday's author event at Dog Ears Books in Northport. We will be hosting poet Holly Wren Spaulding, with her new collection of poems, Pilgrim. Holly will read her work and take questions from attendees, and we will have a wonderful conversation, as we always do with our visiting writers. 

Then, following all that, Holly is generously offering to lead a free workshop in short poetic forms! This is an opportunity not to be missed, for everyone from professional writers to secret, closet poets. 

Holly Wren Spaulding is a teaching artist, editor and creative coach. She is the founder of Poetry Forge (an incubator for writers and their work) and with her husband, author Matt Rigney, Holly co-directs STORYhouse Partners. Her writing has appeared in The NationMichigan Quarterly ReviewWitnessThe Ecologist, in the book We Are Everywhere: The Irresistible Rise of Global Anti-Capitalism (Verso) and elsewhere. Her most recent collection of poems, Pilgrim, was released in 2014 by Alice Greene & Co. She serves on the faculty of the Interlochen College of Creative Arts and is an advisor to the board of the Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design.

Please mark your calendar, set your smart phone alarm, or whatever you need to do so you won't forget to come to the bookstore at 4 o'clock on Thursday afternoon
