Take an Afternoon Poetry Class with Bettie M. Sellers


Dr. Bettie Sellers at Institute for Continuing Learning

at Young Harris College

Thursday, March 11 (1 session)

1 – 3 pm

Goolsby 104

Cost - $7


This class will be a study of several of Bettie's more recent poems, each of which has an interesting genesis. Many poems, as well as other writings, come from a moment of circumstance and are, therefore, forever tied to a moment or event. For further reading, copies of Bettie's books are available at The Book Nook in Blairsville. Long out of print, Liza's Monday and Other Poems is once more available.

Dr. Bettie Sellers, retired Goolsby Professor of English at YHC, has written several books of poetry. She was Poet Laureate of Georgiaand has received numerous awards honoring her many contributions to Georgia and the world.

I have registered for Bettie's class at ICL and look forward to it very much.

Also, I got into "Writing for Children," under Fay Gibbons at the Folk School. I'm so glad you announced the class at Coffee with the Poets. I'm really excited about taking both of these classes.

Brenda Kay, I'm glad you got into both classes. These are golden opportunities. I'm going to continue to
promote writers and writing classes on this site.
