Don't Miss this Poetry Class - Great Teacher

Check out this poetry class at John C. Campbell Folk School on the weekend of April 12. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?
We hear it will get cancelled unless more students sign up. Take this opportunity, if you live in the local area, to get the 1//2 price fee. Here's the description:

MITAKUYE OYASIN: POETRY AND THE NATURAL WORLD 
"Mitakuye Oyasin" is a Lakota Sioux prayer translated, "We are all related." It's a prayer of gratitude for all living things. In that spirit, enjoy the poetry of Wendell Berry, Mary Oliver, and others as we explore the poetic voices of the natural world. Using science and history, we'll investigate how writing poetry can reveal and deepen our relationship to this amazing planet. We'll gain inspiration from early spring in the mountains by taking our classroom outdoors on peaceful walks. All levels welcome.

Netwest poets published in new anthology


We are proud to see some of our own Netwest poets in the company of the best poets in America in an anthology edited by Judith Kitchen , a new anthology about birds. It comes out in January 2009. Look for Nancy Simpson and Janice Townley Moore. If you read poetry, you will recognize many famous poets in the following list.


INSTANT POSTCARD
Dear Friends,“We hope this particular flock of poems succeeds in portraying birds in so many guises (or disguises) that one is forced to look more closely—as if through binoculars—to where these poets guide us.” Wish you were here . . .Yours, Judith Kitchen

The perfect gift for all the readers and/or birders in your life!
An anthology of poems
A dissimulation of birds
