    Poetry Workshop

    6:30 pm - 8:30 pmDayton Metro Library, Community Room, 215 E. Third St. Dayton OH 45402

    I’m leading a Poetry Workshop at the newly rebuilt Dayton Metro Library in the Community Room on the second floor.  (Take the elevator up to 2, take a left and the Community Room will be right there.) Below is the workshop description from the library’s website:

    Ed Davis, author of five books of poetry, will offer a poetry refresher on the critical differences between poetry and prose. Following an exercise writing a brand-new poem, participants will have the opportunity to share their work in light of new (or refreshed) knowledge. 

    As for parking, I suppose there’s still some parking on the street, but I plan to use the new underground parking garage – no parking pass needed at this time, according to librarian Julie Buchanan. You enter (and exit) off of St. Clair, and can take stairs or elevator up to the Atrium.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing the new facilities and connecting with everyone who shows up. I’m not aiming the workshop at complete beginners; I believe that everyone who shows up, regardless of poetry-writing experience, will pick up some tips. And at the very least participants will write a new poem. I’ve begun new stories or poems during workshops that bore fruit later on!
