Tacoma Poet Laureate Abby E. Murray is starting up a free Poem Friday on April 3 with “flash” workshops to keep in touch through poems.
This ongoing series of 10-minute workshops seeks to lift the spirits and get you writing! No writing experience needed; everyone is welcome!
We encourage you to subscribe to the new “gritcitypoetlaureate” YouTube channel and to follow Abby E. Murray’s work here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_x1es-cVenVb37-jji4hag.
John M. Tarrh - composer and consultant, has put Puget Sound Poetry Connections Founder Connie K. Walle's poem, "Write Me a Love Poem" to music.
" I've just discovered a wonderful poet, Connie K. Walle. Her book, What's Left, is full of touching, heartfelt poems. I've set one of these for solo soprano and piano in honor of my wife's sixty-fifth birthday. It's called Write Me a Love Poem. Click here for an audio recording of the song, and here to see the score. I plan to set more of Connie's very special poems to music."
Congratulations to our PSPC founder and President Connie Walle on her recent nomination for the Quill and Parchment Pushcart Prize Nominees for 2019:
Well Done, Connie
