October 23, 2017 ~ The Art of the Collection: Readings by the Poets of Kate Asche’s 2016-17 Monthly Workshop ~ 7:30 p.m. ~ Sacramento Poetry Center
Over a period of eight months in 2016-17, Kate Asche led a group of women poets on a transformational journey into the art of poetry collection-making. These poets (including Kate) collected their poems into chapbook/book manuscripts and shared these collections for extensive workshop feedback, which led to revision across poems through a developing “collection consciousness” as well as revision focused within individual poems. In many cases, new poems also grew out of the workshop feedback. On October 23, join this incredible group of writers at Sacramento Poetry Center to celebrate the challenges, discoveries and triumphs they experienced during this truly one-of-a-kind workshop.
Readers include: Bethanie Humphreys, Jenny Jiang, Heather Judy, Lisa Ludden, Marianne M. Porter, Martha Stromberger, Beth Suter and Kate Asche.
