ELEMENTAL POEMS:a workshop for beginning to advanced levels Sat. Oct. 29, 2-4pm, Forbes Library Community Room In this free workshop we’ll explore the basic elements from which poems (and all creative expression) arise. As Maya Angelou has said: Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances. In addition to writing together we’ll discuss: What sparks the poem? (Fire); What are the poem’s roots? (Earth: Metal & Wood); How does the poem’s language flow? (Water); What gives the poem voice? (Wind) Seating is limited. Pre-registration required by calling 413-587-1011 or stopping by the library’s main desk. Please wear comfortable clothing as we’ll be doing some very simple movement to focus individual and group energy. Bring pen & paper, curiosity, and a short poem to share (your own or someone else’s). __________ Janet E. Aalfs, 7th degree black belt and former poet laureate of Northampton, MA, directs Valley Women’s Martial Arts: Institute for Healing and Violence-Prevention Strategies, founded in 1977.

POETRY A LA CARTE RADIO SHOW
on WMUA-Amherst 91.1 FM
Mondays from 6:00 to 6:30pm

(DJs are usually about half students and half community members). Hence the change in schedule.
Streamed live at http://www.wmua.org/.
The program, hosted by Daisy Mathias, includes reading aloud from past and contemporary poets, and occasionally features live interview and poetry-reading with a local poet.
