Fwd: hope to see you this Friday

It's coming this Friday -- FOURTH FRIDAY READINGS.

Come listen to featured poet Sarah Zale.  Sarah's recent book, Sometimes You Do Things (Aquarius Press: Living Detroit Series, 2013) is inspired by the city of Detroit: its history, its devastation, and its attempt to transform itself. The poems seem to ask, "What can I learn from the spirit of this city?"

Put your name in for a 5-minute reading during Open Mike.  Do rehearse because 5-minutes IS the limit.

Please invite your friends.

Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade | Coursera

Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade | Coursera
Free, online course.  Starts today. (9/21)

100 Word Story given the cue word, "silliness".

15 Sept., 2013

Salvador Dali was full of silliness. I’ve been entertained by his pranks, and I’ve always enjoyed reading about him and looking at his paintings. He would play in the big rocks on the Spanish coast after putting a couple of ripe olives up his nose. He said that the hot sun would make the oils and aromas come alive in his nose and he would spend a good part of the day with the olives deep in his nostrils. I’ve tried this with black olives, green olives…including oil-cured, water-cured, brine-cured, lye-cured, and dry-cured. Pimento-stuffed olives are the ultimate rush.
