Registration is now open for this year's 603 Conference, happening virtually on Saturday, October 23. This conference is sponsored by the New Hampshire Writers' Project: Info here about writing conference.
I'll be joining an exciting line-up of presenters and offering my class, "Present Moment, Poetic Moment." If you're curious about how mindfulness can benefit your poetry, register soon:
Description of workshop: This interactive presentation focuses on using mindful writing techniques to write poems. We begin with an overview of the basics of mindful writing, including impermanence, preconceptions about writing ability, monkey mind, and audience ghosts. With a more conscious approach to the writing moment, every moment can become a prolific moment. We discuss how to diminish writing worry from future- or past-oriented thinking and how to reside in the present moment to write with ease and joy. Participants practice several mindful writing techniques and leave the session with a new poem started.
