SALON 2009

Monthly read-around, feedback, interactive critique.

Every month, in the banquet room of a restaurant in east Columbus, a diverse group of thinking people meets to eat, breathe, drink, sculpt, hammer and polish poetry. We work on craft, presentation, voice and style, persona, place, voice and content, freewriting, seed poems, how to become selfless at the microphone, and much, much more. Each poet consumes as much of this sustenance as he or she can contain. A unique synergy fills the space. A unique bond is created over the common love of words.

You are invited to join us!

First Saturday of each month, February through December 2009

9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Small presses have an uphill struggle to gain recognition. One measure of success is getting favorable reviews. Drinian Press author, Tom LeClair, is managing to get some "ink" for his latest release, Passing Through".

I think I'll make it pretty much a weekly addition.


The poet doesn't invent. He listens. ~Jean Cocteau
