Glen River


A multi-media artist, Glen River’s theme for this reading is Poetry Crossing Borders, “which is generally how I have experienced it,” he said this week. “I will be bringing stuff: some art, a guitar, a small amp, and guitar processor, and mic, a few books.” Don’t miss this evening of invention. For a preview of his overlapping talents check out his website:

“From shamanic visions to sociological insights and humorous reflections, River’s poetry stirs the deep mind.

March 2, 2011 – Priming the Pump – a writing workshop by Faith Vicinanza

Faith Vicinanza

Faith Vicinanza

A writer’s life can be defined as inspiration, ideation, perspiration, creation, publication.  This night is devoted to two of those facets – inspiration and perspiration.  Priming the Pump will be a one hour writing workshop – five writing exercises that will get the creative juices flowing, followed by a fifteen minute writing period where you take one of those quick starts and work on it.  A share will follow.  Then we close out the evening with a poetry critique circle, bring a finished work, ten copies, for a round table discussion of what works and what may need a bit of attention about your poem.  You are welcome to sit in without bringing a poem to share.

Faith Vicinanza will faciliate the writing program.  Ms. Vicinanza is a widely published poet and has been facilitating writing programs for children and adults for over fifteen years.

As always, this was a great time, and lots of useful writing starts!
