Come and Do The Geist Poetry Workout with GJ & Liz!

That's right, it's finally time to get your poetry-loving ass totally kicked at a swanky hotel. Thanks to Stuart Ross who inspired me with his awesome poetry bootcamp a couple of years ago, Gillian Jerome and I are leading the Geist Poetry Workout September 19, 1-4pm at the Listel Hotel in Vancouver. We have a great lot of fun, write some awfully good poems, and then Geist gives us all some really nice literary swag to take home. Yeah!  Here's the deets:

The Geist Poetry Workout

A workshop to strengthen your poetic muscles! Poets Elizabeth Bachinskyand Gillian Jerome will put you through your poetic paces in a sweaty, fun-filled three-hour session. Eat a hearty breakfast beforehand because you’re gonna need all the energy you can muster.

Ten exercises. Ten poems. Three hours. Super fun. Wear a sweatband.

(We’re not kidding!)
