April 22, collage. Happy Earth day! On this beautiful, thundering day I participated in the Lit Cleveland Poetry Festival at Case Western Reserve University. It was a wonderful day of workshops with brand new faces and a couple familiar ones. I learned so much and I made a new friend–amazing to say as an adult! The community of poets in Northeast Ohio is ever expanding for me. I was fortunate enough to take workshops from Zach Savich (on sound and music), Ali Black (on the real and raw), and Robin Beth Schaer (on revision). It was so good to write with others today and to hear everyone’s ideas and works in progress. So, here’s the collage of my day.
