A FREE poetry workshop featuring poet Carolyn Martin

It Happens This Way …

One of the questions readers predictably ask poets is “Where do you get your ideas?” The most common answer is anywhere and everywhere. But what does that mean specifically? In this lively workshop, Carolyn Martin will use her own poems as examples of concrete sources of inspiration. She will challenge participants with “homework assignments” for each source and send them searching for new poems in terrain they may not have traversed before.

From associate professor of English to management trainer to retiree, Carolyn Martin has published poems in journals throughout North America, Australia, and the UK. Her fourth collection, A Penchant for Masquerades, was released by Unsolicited Press in 2019. She is currently the poetry editor of Kosmos Quarterly: journal for global transformation.

Sign up for the Oct. 25, FREE poetry workshop with poet Carolyn Martin. The workshop begins at 4 p.m. MDT.

You are invited to visit our Las Vegas Literary Salon—ONLINE (thanks to COVID-19).  We hope to meet in person at Gallery 140, 140 Bridge Street, Las Vegas, NM as soon as it is safe and healthy to do so.
