SC state parks Artist-in-Residence Program

The South Carolina State Parks system notified me earlier this week that I've been selected for their 2010 Artist-in-Residence program. Very exciting news! My week-long residency will be at Oconee State Park, Mountain Rest, the third week in May. After living in a cabin there for the week--exploring the park and spending time writing about its flora and fauna--I'll turn in a framed poem to be hung somewhere in one of the cabins or other facility on their grounds. I was told that only one poet was selected for 2010, and I'm honored to be that poet.

Yesterday's poetry workshop

Thanks to those who attended yesterday's workshop at the CCU Waccamaw Center on "Writing toward a Poem's Mystery." Our discussion and close reading of the poems in the class packet has left me with much to think about, and I hope it has for the others in the class, too. Plus, I enjoyed hearing everyone read the new poems started in class yesterday--not to mention the pleasure that our group poem brought us all.

The workshop I'll be teaching in the spring semester will be "The Usefulness of Silence," which will include some of these considerations: A poem’s silences fulfill a purpose just as the words do. Thus, poets need to know how to use white space, punctuation, elliptical syntax, the unspoken—and the many other ways to be silent in a poem. We’ll read sample published poems, discuss how they manage their silences, and write poems of our own.

I'm already looking forward to it.

Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009 -- Workshop: Writing toward a Poem's Mystery

Workshop: Writing toward a Poem's Mystery
Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Waccamaw Higher Education Center
160 Wilbrook Boulevard
Pawleys Island, SC 29585
OLLI at Coastal Carolina University
Instructor, Susan Meyers

Some of the most enduring poems, those that bear repeated readings, can claim both clarity and mystery. A poem’s mystery is partly what accounts for its leaps, when some of the work of connecting—of getting from here to there—is left to the reader. The class will include writing activities and a resource packet.

Lunch can be purchased at a nearby deli, or bring your own.

Aug. 18-25, 2009: Poem featured at Linebreak

I love having a poem on Linebreak, partly because each week the online journal offers an audio of the featured poem. This week I'm happy that my poem "Dear Happenstance" is featured there, read by Josh Brown.

This poem is included in my book manuscript "My Dear, Dear Stagger Grass," now being circulated.

Jul. 31-Aug. 1, 2009: NC Writers Conference

July 31 - August 1, 2009
North Carolina Writers Conference
Little River Golf & Resort
Carthage / Pinehurst, NC
"Our 60th Splendid Summer"
Ruth Moose, Honoree

What a pleasure it was for Sally Logan, Pat Riviere-Seel, and me to plan this year's NC Writers Conference honoring Ruth Moose, of Pittsboro. Each year at the end of July, Conference members and their guests meet at a different location across North Carolina to hold programs and honor a North Carolina writer or literary leader at the Saturday night banquet.

Ruth Moose—highly regarded writer, editor, critic, and teacher—was chosen for her talents as a writer and long-time teacher and leader in the literary community. She is the author of numerous books of fiction and poetry. Her short story collections include Rules and Secrets (Pure Heart Press, Main Street Rag Publisher), a reissue of stories from the earlier books The Wreath Ribbon Quilt and Other Stories and Dreaming in Color. Her poetry collections include Making the Bed (Sandstone Publishing), Smith Grove (Sow’s Ear Press), Finding Things in the Dark (Briarpatch Press), To Survive (Book Mark Press, Univ. of Missouri), as well as her just-released collection The Librarian and Other Poems (Main Street Rag Publishing).

Ruth is on the Creative Writing Faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill, a position she has held since 1996. Her work has been published in Atlantic Monthly, New Delta Review, Yankee, The Nation, Christian Century, Southern Poetry Review, and numerous other magazines and literary journals. It has also frequently been anthologized and taught in classes. Her honors include several PEN Awards for Syndicated Fiction, a Robert Ruark Award for Short Story, North Carolina Writers Fellowship, MacDowell Fellowship, and Oscar Arnold Young Book Award for Poetry.

Friday night's Conference program offered an abbreviated performance of "A Thousand Things Time Will Never Let Us Say: The Correspondence of James & Katharine Boyd and Friends," a readers' theater performance based on years of research done by author Stephen Smith. It was performed by Stephen Smith, Shelby Stephenson, Marsha Warren, and friends. Afterward Ruth read from The Librarian. Mostly she chose humorous poems for her reading--and kept the audience bent double with laughter.

Saturday's program, planned by Sally Logan, consisted of two morning panels. The first was "On Readings, Reviews, and Interviews," by Kay Grismer, The Country Bookshop; Faye Dasen, Features Editor, The Pilot; and D. G. Martin, host of NC Bookwatch. The second panel on "Writing for Children and Young Adults" was offered by authors Eleanora E. Tate, Lisa Williams Kline, and Joyce Moyer Hostetter.

The Saturday afternoon program, presented by Georgann Eubanks, was a virtual literary tour of the Piedmont region of North Carolina, focusing on writers' houses. Her program was based on the second volume of her three-part series, North Carolina Literary Trails. Each volume features numerous trails mapped out for either the mountains, Piedmont, or coast.

At the Saturday night banquet--emceed by Joy Acey--Sally Buckner, Bland Simpson, John York, and Valerie Yow paid tribute to Ruth. Also, letters of tribute from Mignon Ballard, Joseph Bathanti, Doris Betts, Marianne Gingher, Johnsie Markham, Dannye Romine Powell, and Dartha Whitis were read.

The NCWC, begun in 1950, celebrated its theme of “Our 60th Splendid Summer” this year. Chairing this event was a huge task, but it brought me great satisfaction to see about a hundred members and guests coming together to enjoy the programs, visit with fellow authors and friends, honor Ruth Moose, and look back with fondness at the organization's past. Next year's Conference, chaired by Sally Logan, will honor author and musician Bland Simpson.

Morning after the Hailstorm

On the porch floor the scattered green stars
     that fell        from the sweet gums.
Some torn & misshapen
               as if to say       the wish
will never come true.       Pine scent
      in the air,
            the gravel drive littered
with pitched needles & limbs.

In the garden the beans
             beaten down,
the herbs (peppers too)      and, oh, the tattered
      umbrellas of squash leaves.

           It was a wild night of lashing,
a veil of steam       rising. All the pummeling
                & shredding.
All the loose bright green
     to the ground,       soon to turn brown.
For a few early hours the tender
                pretense (forget
the havoc) that the heart is cheerful
      as birdsong. Till the sun,        searing
a different truth,       climbs higher.

New website for the SC Poetry Initiative

There you'll find information about its poetry contests, programs, publications, and various projects.

Cosponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Coastal Carolina University
and The Poetry Society of South Carolina.

The final reading by featured guest poets for this year's Litchfield TEA & POETRY SERIES is tomorrow, and it's going to be another wonderful program. We've got extremely gifted North Carolina poets coming to read for us: Barbara Conrad, of Charlotte, and Barbara Presnell, of Lexington. I've known both poets for years, and I asked them to participate because I knew that those of you in the area will enjoy getting to know them and their fine poems.

Also, I've asked Barbara Conrad to demonstrate West African drumming for us, since she has been playing the drums for a number of years. Let's hope to hear a sample. A perfect pairing with poetry!


Barbara Conrad, of Charlotte, NC, is author of The Gravity of Color and editor of Waiting for Soup, an anthology from Charlotte's homeless population. Her poems have been published in Tar River Poetry, Main Street Rag, Icarus, and Kakalak: Anthology of Carolina Poets. She works with the homeless, plays West African drums, and enjoys time with her two grown daughters.

North Carolina poet Barbara Presnell’s collection, Piece Work, won the 2006 Cleveland State University Poetry Center’s First Book Prize and was published by CSU in 2007. Her poems and short stories have been published in many journals, and she’s a recent recipient of the NC Arts Council Fellowship in Writing. Piece Work is the focus of an NC Touring Ensemble program to be performed across North Carolina later this year.


This is our third year of the series, thanks to Linda Ketron of Coastal Carolina University, who initiated it and directs it. If you're in the area, please come to hear the poems of some of the best poets in the region. And please help us to get the word out.

It has been my pleasure to have the lovely duty of lining up the roster for Litchfield Tea & Poetry for the past three years. We'll be back next January with the 2010 Tea & Poetry Series.

Monday, Mar. 23: Poetry class at Charleston Southern University

On Monday, March 23, I had the pleasure of being the guest instructor for a poetry class at Charleston Southern University of Charleston, SC. Ellen Hyatt, on the faculty in the Department of English there, invited me to come teach the day's class for her poetry-writing course. There are eight students in the course, a perfect size for a workshop.

For the day's session I chose the topic "Writing Letters from Within," on writing epistolary poems. Mainly we read a selection of poems from the class packet I had prepared, wrote a group poem, and then each wrote a postcard poem. I was impressed with the students' talents, interest, and participation. It was a rewarding experience for me.

Alumni magazine for Queens University of Charlotte

I was pleased to be asked by Queens, the alumni magazine of Queens University of Charlotte, to write a brief piece on why I became a poet. My essay was part of an article about the Low-Residency MFA Program in Creative Writing offered at Queens. Check out the Winter 2009 issue of Queens (below), which includes the article, "The Write Stuff." The cover photo is of Michael Kobre, Queens professor and campus director of the MFA in Creative Writing Program, who wrote "The Write Stuff." Other alumni who contributed to it include Karon Luddy, Ron Stodghill, Peter Reinhart, and Jessica Handler.
