Monthly poetry workshop with Christopher Luna Saturday, October 9, 2010

Please join me tomorrow for my monthly workshop. This will be the first workshop held at Niche, Leah Lackson's new wine and art bar. Tomorrow we will celebrate John Lennon's birthday and listen to and read work from Allen Ginsberg, G.L.Morrison, and Akilah Oliver.

"The Work"
Poetry Workshop with Christopher Luna

Why do we write? What is the poet’s place in the world? What can we do to increase our ability to inspire and provoke with our words? How do we integrate our compulsion to create into our everyday lives? These and other questions and will be addressed in The Work, a workshop facilitated by Christopher Luna. From noon til 2:30 every second Saturday we will gather at Niche to listen to, discuss, and write poetry. The cost is $20 per session or $45 for three months in advance. Register now by contacting Christopher Luna at or 360-910-1066. See you Saturday, October 9.

Well, while I'm here I'll
do the work –
and what's the work?
to ease the pain of living.
Everything else, drunken

Allen Ginsberg, “Memory Gardens”

My name is Evan and I work at a digital advertising agency called Night Agency ( We recently launched a new community called HAIKYU ( where people can submit their own work as well as voting for their favorite Haiku. It’s a great way to discover new work, get recognized, and even win prizes. After seeing your Blog, we thought you and your followers might be interested to join our new and upcoming Haiku community. To celebrate the launch of this new community we are running a contest until October 31st where the Haiku with the most votes will win $250! It would be great if you could share the site with your followers/readers/fans and send us any and all feedback you may have (
