7/16/11: workshop with the poet laureate

Josie Emmons Turner is the 2011-2013 Poet Laureate of Tacoma, Washington, a 2-year position sponsored by the Tacoma Arts Commission. Who knew? Tacoma has something going on.

Josie ran a workshop today, exploring place and persona at the Fort Nisqually Museum,  at Point Defiance Park. It was a fruitful event, with about 16 attendees. We read and then wrote poems, most of them good drafts, good enough so that we agreed to come back together in September to share our final work, maybe even schedule a group reading.

It was fun. I’m glad I went.
