COME AND TRY OUT YOUR NEW WORK ON US!
Sunday, May 19

Note: This forum is meeting the third Sunday of the month (instead of the typical fourth Sunday).
Facilitator Hannah Gamble is the author of Your Invitation to a Modest Breakfast, selected by Bernadette Mayer for the 2011 National Poetry Series and published by Fence Books.

Her poems appear in recent issues of The Laurel Review, Forklift Ohio, and jubilat. You can find her blogs and online articles at the Poetry Foundation and the Poetry Society of America.
Topic: This forum will explore a writer’s creation-anxiety as the primary source of writer’s block and will examine surrealist game techniques, collaborative poetry, and imitation as reliable methods of overcoming this very common challenge to a writer’s productivity and enjoyment of the craft.
