In Honor of National Poetry Month, I thought I’d reblog this entry from Kathy Temen about Poet and children’s writer David Harrison.
Poetry for the Delight of It
September 29 – October 2.
David’s first book for children, The Boy with a Drum, was released in 1969 and eventually sold more than two million copies. In 1972, David won national recognition when he received the Christopher Award for The Book of Giant Stories. Since then David has published seventy-seven original titles that have sold more than fifteen million copies and earned numerous honors.
From budding poet to published veteran, if you like to think, talk, write, and share poetry, this one’s for you. Don’t wait too long to decide, this workshop sold out last year.
Here is the agenda:
Session 1: The Study of Poetry
Session 2: Verse
Session 3: Are You Funny?
Session 4: Skype Guest Kenn Nesbitt
Session 5: Revising and Rewriting
Session 6: Skype Guest Jane Yolen
