100 Thousand Poets for Change, Reprised

100 Thousand Poets for Change logoWell, it’s that time of year again. This Saturday, September 29, 2012, will mark the second annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change grassroots extravagance, which currently comprises some 800 events in 115 countries.

Last year, I participated in an effort to inundate with poetry the inboxes of state and local government offices in North Carolina. This year I’m planning to join an event organized by poet and my writing group cohort Stephanie Levin.

Details are below–come join us.

This is Just to Say…

Where: The back patio at Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro, NC

When: 10 am to noon, Saturday, September 29

What: Part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change, this is your chance to stop for a moment and jot a quick note of love, gratitude, or longing you’ve meant to write but haven’t. Notecards, pens, poetry, and hopefully a gentle September breeze will be provided. One-on-one critiques will be offered, too. Bring up to two poems for on-the-spot feedback.
