Thursday, October 1, 2015 BARTLEBY SCRIVENER POETRY GROUP & GNB WRITER’S BLOCK will host a special Poetry Workshop from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Gallery X, 169 William Street, New Bedford MA.
The Poetry Writing Workshop will be led by Poet Laureate of New Bedford and GNB Writer’s Block co-founder, Patricia Gomes. Prompt for poems written during the workshop is “family.” A $3 donation is requested although not required. The first hour, 6:00 to 7:00 PM will be devoted to silent writing, followed by a shared reading of poems created on the spot.
“I’ve wanted to collaborate with Patricia Gomes and GNB Writer’s Block for awhile and presenting this writing mini-marathon seemed like the perfect match,” said Bartleby Scrivener Poetry Group founder, Susan Grace. “Pat is also a member of Bartleby and having this workshop at Gallery X will offer something a little different from our usual Bartleby poetry discussion format. We will return to our regular meetings in November.”
BARTLEBY SCRIVENER POETRY GROUP is an informal discussion group. The purpose of the group is to invite conversation about poetry and offer encouragement and feed-back to poets in a supportive, creative setting. The format is not a critique workshop. Its focus is to provide a comfortable place where poets and lovers of poetry can talk about poetry and share their work and insights. Bartleby meets the first Thursday of each month at The Wamsutta Club, 427 County Street, New Bedford MA from 6:15-8:30pm.
GNB WRITER’S BLOCK co-founded by Patricia Gomes and Dawn Lopes promotes poetry, gives and hosts readings and workshops (adult and students), contests, and encourages spreading the poetic word.
