SPLAB-on-the-Road (Newcastle)

April 5, 2015
Splabman

Samar Albuhassan joined your humble narrator for a SPLAB-on-the-Road workshop at the Newcastle Library in Renton, WA, Saturday April 4, 2015. While the group gathered was small, perhaps due to the holiday weekend, they were inspired and witnessed a poetry bout demonstration, with Samar and me alternating reading of other people’s poems and judged by a panel of three. Poems by Brenda Hillman, Claudia Rankine, Allen Ginsberg and Victor Hernandez Cruz vied for votes and a lively workshop featuring prompts by both Samar and YHN gave the gathered a good start to National Poetry Month.

My gratitude goes to Donna Day of the Newcastle Library and the KCLS, which has booked perhaps 70 different SPLAB-on-the-Road workshops over the years and has not, as of yet, deleted us from their database.
