poetry getaway

Poets on the CoastIt’s January. September seems an impossible leap, a thought that hasn’t even occured to you. But take a moment. Recall the long light of the Northwest summer. Remember how eager you feel at the first scent of autumn. Now imagine how many poems you could write if the season was launched with inspiring art, scenery and words — in particular, the words and wisdom of poets Kelli Russell Agodon and Susan Rich.

For the fifth year — and the first time in La Conner, Washington — Kelli and Susan will offer their Poets on the Coast retreat for women September 11-13, 2015. Enrollment is very limited, plus the rates go up after February 15 (though it may be full by then anyway). If it sounds intriguing, find out more.

Not sure? Susan and Kelli will offer a “mini-retreat” in Seattle on Saturday, January 24, at which they’ll conduct two workshops: Generating New Poems! (10 am – 1 pm) and From Manuscript into Book: The Process Demystified (1:30 pm – 4:30 pm). Take one or both. Your writing will thank you.
