Gilroy Library

Admission Free
presented in collaboration with Santa Clara County Poet Laureate David Perez

David Perez leads this series of two poetry composition courses for writers of all ages. Participants are invited to bring work they have previously written and to attend on both days. Attending both courses affords writers the opportunity to revise work from the first day and receive another round of feedback and edits. Course content will differ from one day to the next. Email Kelly Bennan Young at KYoung@sccl.org for more info.

 

Poets @ Play
Sunday, May 11, 2014, 1pm to 4pm

Edwin Markham House in History Park
1650 Senter Road, San José, CA 95112
Admission FREE
Free parking in the Staff/Volunteer lot on Phelan Avenue

An informal gathering for collaborating with fellow poets about works in progress, that’s what Poets@Play is all about. We alternate between writing and sharing our works in progress. This is not a workshop, but rather a playhouse – some starter ideas and a comfortable place to play with words.

Questions? Call 408-368-0353
RSVP recommended but not required: poetsatplay@pcsj.org
