Take your poetry to another level, learn a new skill, help Beyond Baroque and remember a Los Angeles Poet on Saturday May 14.
Poet and teacher Laurel Ann Bogen will lead a one-day workshop (11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) on honing your poetry editing skills. Many writers believe that poems arrive fully formed from the imagination in a single draft. However, just as a nugget of gold can be valuable, in polishing our roughness a nuanced beauty is allowed to shine.
The workshop is open and limited to 15 participants on a first come/first served basis, the cost is $50. All fees received will be donated to Beyond Baroque in memory of Erica Erdman, a long-time (15-year) student in Laurel's Master Class in Poetry, and will be used to fund a project in her name that will be announced at a later time.
Please submit 2 poems to Beyond Baroque with your check no later than May 1st for consideration. Mark your envelop Erica Erdman Workshop and mail your application to Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice CA 90291.
Thank you for your participation!
Your Beyond Baroque Team
