Coming Soon (March 16, if you want to be particular) to a Blog Near You (that would be right here one week, and then Susan Taylor Brown’s blog the next)!!!
I told you about our online book club last week, and how we’re going to read through parts of writing books we like and–gasp!–actually do some of the writing exercises contained therein. It’s the part of the book people tend to read, admire, and ignore. But not us! Not anymore, at least. Because we’re making a public vow to do some of those exercises and blog about the book. We find it’s easier to keep up a difficult new habit if NOT keeping up with it will risk public humiliation.
We hope you’ll obtain a copy of Sage Cohen’s Writing the Life Poetic
and join us. It won’t be anything complicated. Each Wednesday, either Susan or I will reflect on a selected chapter and share a poem or two in response to one of the writing exercises. And we’ll ask you to take part in the conversation and also to respond to the chosen writing exercise. And then we’ll tell you the chapter number for the next week (because we’re not going to go in order through the whole book). Simple! We’ll start with chapter one, and we’ll be discussing that two weeks from today. So order or check out the book, and we’ll see you back here on March 16!
P.S. On the Wednesdays when I’m hosting Write After Reading, Susan Taylor Brown will post a link to my blog, and vice versa. So as long as you’re visiting one of our blogs regularly, you won’t miss a thing!
