(The 58th Anniversary show is at DepotArtGallery.org.)
Poetry Month set for September
Usually, April is Poetry Month, which seems appropriate with thoughts of spring, flowers, soft breezes, trees leafing out, etc. … But this year is out of whack generally and the Castle Rock Writers, who usually hold a spring event, have switched to September, in conjunction with the Poetry Society of Colorado. Colorado poet Juan Morales, who teaches creative writing at Colorado State University-Pueblo, recently presented “Writing the Poems of Our Land” on Zoom, with a focus on the diverse voices and the makeup of our cultures, foods, communities and homes, in free form and in verse.
