GLVWG Events

Upcoming Events

    • 21 Oct 2018
    • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
    • Wanamakers General Store, 8888 Kings Hwy, Kempton, PA
    Go West, Writers! Again
    Open to the public and free.

    Any person under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend this or any other GLVWG event.

    The event is free and mirrors the format of the monthly Writers Café already in place. Interested participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring a summary and single page of their current work for gentle critique and guidance. 

    The readings will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is open to all, but especially those GLVWG members who are unable to make it to the regular Thursday Writers Cafe at the Palmer Township Library due to distance.

    Café West is more than just a critique meeting. It’s an opportunity to meet with other writers, share and compare notes about the writing process. It can give you the boost you need to get going and finish your work as well as provide a circle of like-minded enthusiasts who share your passion for the written word.

    Coffee, beverages and sandwiches will be available for purchase.

    Questions: Bernadette Sukley – bsukley@ptd.net.

    Roxana L. Cazan: The Concept of Bio-Poetry

    We all wonder who we are or who we were at different moments of our lives, in order to understand where were are going or what we can produce. Historical, subversive, surreal, postcard, polaroid, embodied: bio-poetry or the poetry of identity can be deceptive, tough, and magically accessible. Roxana introduces the concept of the bio-poem, presents some examples, and situates it in a literary context.

    Dr. Roxana L. Cazan is Assistant Professor of English and Women's Studies at Saint Francis University.

    Afternoon Workshop: Writing Memory, Writing Life: The Crafting of Bio-Poetry

    Instead of trying to pin down this elusive form, we will examine several manifestations of it in order to expand our notion of what is possible in a bio-poem. We will play with appearance, discover potential source materials, and generate our own poems that bridge the ordinary and the extraordinary. Attendees will explore their biographies, write their own bio-poems, and discuss them with the group.

    You must register to attend this workshop.
