Ojai WordFest: Be Well Read 3/25! Join Poetry Boot Camp 3/26 with Danika!

March 25, 2011

Ojai WordFest Update!

I won the Ojai WordFest slam on Wednesday with my team mate Danika Dinsmore hot on my heals! The event was lots of fun and newby host Georgia Menides did great (with a little tutoring on hosting from Danika and I!) Georgia’s a natural at hosting and I hope she does more.

Last night’s Living Room Style Open Mic reading at Big Buddha Lounge also went really well. Danika and I co-hosted it and we had nearly 2 dozen people in attendance, more than half of whom shared their own work. Next month Big Buddha and I are talking about holing a National Poetry Month reading there–I’ll let you know as that evolves!

Tonight Friday March 25, I’ll be at Well Red from about 7:45-10pm where I will have a very brief reading from my new book Middle of the Night Poems From Daughter to Mother :: Mother to Son (en theos press) and signing around 8:45pm during Ojai WordFest’s Lit Crawl at Los Caporales Restaurant & Tequila Bar (307 E Ojai Ave on the patio next to Libbey Bowl and across from the Arcade).

My good friend the poet and novelist

Danika Dinsmore will be MC; a collective toast to authors with new works is at 9pm. Sequioa Hamilton is hosting it and the Ventura County Writers Club is sponsoring it. Learn more here about Lit Crawl events:http://ojaiwordfest.wordpress.com/calendar/friday-march-25/lit-crawl/ It’s free!

Tomorrow Saturday March 26 I will be at POETRY BOOTCAMP with DANIKA DINSMORE.

She’s teaching the class in two sessions–$99 each or both for $149. You’ll get a shot of creative adrenalin in this exercise

-driven poetry class doing a number of inspiring “pen to paper” writing workouts. Danika brings to the workshop table innovative exercises in spontaneous composition and various experiments in form which will help break through writer’s block or resistance.

REGISTER NOW. 2 Sessions Available: 9am – noon or 2pm – 5pm

    thanks for all the blogging. Sorry I missed Danika at the Colbalt…I had so much to do getting back to LA I just couldn’t make it. I’m sure she rocked it!
