Free Poetry Workshop Taught by Papa Green Bean


Free Poetry Workshop by Papa Green Bean

Hey Everyone,

I've been given the honor of leading a poetry workshop for the Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest.  This is an annual event held here in Bellingham, WA, my home town. 

Sign up by clicking this link: Papa Green Bean's Poetry workshop

There are hundreds of entries every year from all ages. Poets may only enter one poem per year, so the chances of being selected is low. Ten poems are selected as 'Walk' winners. These poems are mounted outside the Bellingham Library for a year. The next fifteen poems chosen are 'Merit' winners. These are placed on Bellingham city buses for a year. 

This year, after five or six poems not being chosen, my poem in 2020 was a 'Merit' winner! Winners read their poem at a special ceremony, and a local artist creates an illustration based on their inspiration to the poems. Here is mine:

Here is the link, again, to join the workshop. The Sue C. Boynton Poetry contest has a particular fondness for encouraging youth in the art of poetry. Many young one's poems are selected each year, along with older folk like me! 

This workshop will be designed for children, many who have never written a poem before. However, to be sure, it is open to writers, and wanna-be poets of all ages. So, feel free to attend. 

It will be a virtual event on zoom. Here is the direct link.

Warmly waving,

Papa Green Bean
