Big Tent Poetry event

I admit that I'd never heard of "Big Tent Poetry" until today. But there it was in my blog reader - via Sage Cohen's blog, "Writing the Life Poetic." Unfortunately, I can't go to the event - but I am reading up on Big Tent Poetry and will be reading up about that group and their offerings (readings, workshops, etc). It looks great - and I wish I could go - maybe the next one!

...from Sage Cohen:

July 17, noon: Big Tent Poetry reading and celebration

I'll be hosting a Big Tent Poetry reading on Saturday, July 17 featuring a number of poets involved in Big Tent Poetry, an online site that provides weekly poetry writing prompts, friendly community, inspiration and fun. Come on out and celebrate poetry with  Big Tent Poetry founders, contributors and participants. Featured poets will include Tiel Aisha Ansari, Sage Cohen, Dale Favier, Deb Scott and Carolee Sherwood. We'd love to see you there.
