by Lola Haskins
Lola is a beautiful poet. I can't wait to read this. In her words:Finally! My poetry advice book is ready from Backwaters Press. It’s called Not Feathers Yet: A Beginner’s Guide to the Poetic Life. (In the zen sense, we’re all beginners)

Here are some of the things you can find in it—
1. how to jump-start your subconscious
2. what to look for when you edit
3. how you know a poem is finished
4. how to put a book together
5. how to share your poetry safely with friends and lovers
6. how to deal with rejection
7. how to get your book out into the world
8. how to give a good reading
9. how to find new things TO read when you don’t know anyone else who reads
Please support your local bookstores— independents first, but even the big chains can get it: through Ingram. Otherwise, it’s available online.
Thanks for reading all this! Be well.
Lola

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES WRITING WORKSHOPS WITH SARAH RABKIN - SPRING AND SUMMER 2007

Space is still available in all of my upcoming spring and summer workshops. Extensive information is available via the sponsoring organizations; see telephone numbers and web & email addresses below. If you would like more insight into a particular class than you glean there, feel free to drop me an email or call me: 831-475-7548.
If you haven't yet been to either the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology, on the Oregon coast, or the San Francisco State University Sierra Nevada Field Campus, on the North Yuba River, consider giving yourself the treat of discovering a richly beautiful and alluring place.
EVERYDAY POETRY * Sunday, June 24

CIRCLING HOME: Writing for Beloved Places * June 29-July 1 SITKA CENTER FOR ART & ECOLOGY
Is there a neighborhood, a coastline, a spot somewhere on Earth that has a powerful claim on your heart? Pen in hand, we will explore the knowledge and dreams associated with beloved terrain. A series of guided writing exercises will enable each participant to draft a compelling piece of prose about a chosen place-perhaps advocating explicitly on behalf of a besieged or endangered area. The intensive three-day workshop will integrate group instruction and discussion with independent writing and revising, inspiring readings, and optional one-on-one meetings with the teacher.http://
www.sitkacenter.org or email
Writing poems is a way of paying attention. It can distill meaning from everyday moments and communicate a wide range of experiences. This one-day workshop will open doors into the world of poetry. We will experiment with free verse as well as formal poems; we will range over a variety of topics, tactics, voices, and moods. Participants will emerge with original poems and with tools for making poetry a life practice.


THE NATURALIST'S NOTEBOOK: Keeping A Field Journal * July 19-22
SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY SIERRA NEVADA FIELD CAMPUS
www.sfsu.edu/~sierra/ jsteele@sfsu.edu 650-738-1814 (to June); 530-862-1230 (June-Aug)
Whether you are a field scientist, a student of natural history, or simply a lover of the natural world, a notebook can serve as your best teacher and your most valuable tool. We will explore the power of the notebook for both recording and enhancing observations in the field. Activities in a variety of habitats will help participants sharpen their sketching and writing skills and engage more deeply with the objects of their interest. Productive approaches to field notes range from rigorous and systematic to subjective and playful; our investigations will cover that spectrum. All levels of writing and drawing skill and natural history knowledge are welcome; exercises are designed to be used and enjoyed by beginners and seasoned practitioners alike.
