Upcoming Event


Western Colorado Writers' Forum

POETRY WORKSHOP with Colorado Poet Laureate Finalist, 

Wendy Videlock


Saturday, October 18, 2014 2:00-5:00 pm

Center for Independence 740 Gunnison Av Grand Junction, CO 81501


Impeccability, Fierceness, and the Word

Wendy will discuss the works of William Butler Yeats, John Keats, and Louise Bogan.  She will consider the poetic impulse and how it manifests, the subtle implications of meter, and the natural cultivation of the unique voice in examining "how a poem means."  Bring a pen, notebook, and a favorite poem you have created.  Wendy will offer critique and feedback of your work during this interactive, dynamic class.  You are also welcome to just come and listen.


Please register by calling 970-256-4662 and leaving your name and phone number or by e-mailing us at wcwritersforum@gmail.com.

Free to WCWF members - $20 for non-members for the workshop (you can join at the door or at our web site westerncoloradowriters.org)
