Escape the heat and come to the Open Circle Poetry Group on Monday, July 25, 6:30 (note time change).
Here are suggestions for writing, if you need a jumpstart:
1) Summer heat – It doesn’t necessarily have to be about the weather; there are all kinds of summer heat. Politics?
2) Continue with the “This Is Where I’m From” template and poem.
3) Bring an award-winning selection to read. We are eager to hear Ramey Channell’s two winners from the 2016 Alabama Writers’ Conclave. Congratulations, Ramey. Well done!
4) Bring something that you’re working on. We’re good sounding boards.
“Other Things” – Consider attending these events:
• Thursday, July 28, 6:30 – Birmingham Arts Journal reading and reception (free) at Mountain Brook Emmet O’Neal Library. This is the Hackney Award edition, and Frank Dawson will read his Hackney Award-winning poem. Congratulations, Frank.
