Denton Poets' Assembly will meet on Saturday, July 21st. The public and guests are invited! Many of our members have just returned from the PST 2018 Summer Conference in Waco. I’m sure the enthusiasm and excitement level will be palpable.
A critique session will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 9:45. Our regular meeting will begin at 10 a.m.
After greeting visitors, members will discuss chapter business and related chapter activities.
Following the discussion, we will read assigned poems based on J. Paul Holcomb's lesson on "Found Poetry."
After the assigned poetry readings, J. Paul will present his July lesson on, "Color of Mourning," later in the meeting. Afterward, embers and guests will be given an opportunity to read a free choice poem.
At noon we will adjourn.
