Hello Poets, 

I received a newsletter from City Lights Book Store.
They are announcing Coffee With the Poets, Thursday Nov 21 
at 10:30 -- 12:00, a special event with  Kathryn Stripling Byer 
leading  a workshop on pulling poems together into a collection
ready for publication. She will read some of her poems.  

Coffee with the Poets gathers every third Thursday at City Lights 
Bookstore in  Sylva, NC, and it is sponsored by North Carolina 
Writers Network WEST. If you are working on putting a poetry 
manuscript together, you might want to attend this special event. 
Kathryn Byer has published six books of poetry and served 
as N.C. Poet Laureate 2005-2009.

This sounds like a great workshop. I sure wish I could attend. I always enjoy taking classes under Kay because I learn a lot about poetry.
