Michael Diebert, last class for the 2013 season at Writers Circle, October 12



Michael Diebert, poetry editor for the Chattahoochee Review
 - Saturday, October 12, 2013

10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Writers Circle Studio

Michael Diebert is poetry editor for The Chattahoochee Review and teaches writing and literature at Georgia Perimeter College in Atlanta.  He is the author of Life Outside the Set, available from Sweatshoppe Publications through amazon.com.  Recent poems have appeared and/or are forthcoming in The Comstock Review,jmww, and The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.

Looking at the Poetic Line
Just as the sentence is arguably the fundamental unit of prose, the line is arguably the fundamental unit of poetry.  More than image, metaphor, concision, or imagination—all of which are also crucial elements—the line gives a poem essential force and significance.  We’ll briefly examine some theory of line, look at several poems’ uses of line, and discuss how more conscientious attention to this oft-overlooked element can inform and enrich our own poems’ potential.

Participants may email one original poem to Michael for inclusion in the discussion—preferably 30 lines or fewer.  His email address is crazyquilt67@gmail.com.  Please send poems no later than Friday, Oct. 5.

Register by sending a $40 check made to Glenda Beall and mail to 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC 28904 or email: nightwriter0302@yahoo.com

July Classes with Robert King and Karen Holmes

Saturday, June 20, 1- 4 p.m. Karen Holmes will teach a poetry editing class at Writers Circle. We have a full class and look forward to being with other poets and writers to learn and share with each other.


On Saturday, July 27, Robert S. King will teach a workshop at the Moss Memorial Library in Hayesville, NC on electronic submissions. Every time I get with local writers I hear someone say they don't feel confident using the online methods to submit their work.

Robert King is proficient in this type of thing and can teach us how to best get our work out to the world to enjoy without the old familiar hard copy and SASE.
Maybe this class will get me going and submitting more of my work.

What about you? Are you being held back by the new technology and online submissions? Did you know that Boomers are the group who use most of the smart phones, I-Pads and other gadgets, not the young ones. We can learn what we need to learn, so sign up for Robert's class and send out your stories, essays and poetry.

Contact me, Glenda Beall, 828-389-4441 or nightwriter0302@yahoo.com, contact Robert at rskingpoet@gmail.com  or simply send a check made to Writers Circle and mail to 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC.
Do it now because space is limited in the computer lab at the library.
