The Poem Starts HERE! Workshop — The Writer's Center, Bethesda, MD 

Sept. 9 - Oct. 28, 2014; Tuesdays, 10:30 a.m - 1:00 p.m.  (8 sessions)

Honoring William Stafford's dictum: "Writer's block?  Lower your standards!", in this workshop we'll put together a toolbox of exercises and strategies for jumping into the poem's first draft without hesitancy or over-thinking.  Revising these drafts toward finished poems to be shared in workshop will open up discussion on matters of craft and the often mysterious and unpredictable ways that language itself works to lead the making of the poem forward.  

Intermediate level

Further info can be found at The Writer's Center or by emailing Marie Pavlicek-Wehrli at pavlicekmarie@hotmail.com.

Re-discovering: From the Archives

I had forgotten about these small collages until recently coming across them in a drawer. The base layer of each is a page from a cookbook & manual on butchering I found in a used bookstore, written and published in mid-20th c. Czechoslovakia (present day Czech Republic). More can be found here.

RUST BELT TALES issue of ABOUT PLACE JOURNAL 

Featured in the RUST BELT TALES issue on the online ABOUT PLACE JOURNAL, are my two poems In the Valley of Fire My Parents Are Sleeping and When All You Own Is Anger.  Many thanks to editor Michael McDermott, not only for putting together a wide arc of writing on the Rust Belt experience, but also for managing to get permission to include multiple views of Diego Rivera's amazing Detroit Industry Murals in this issue as well.
