Red Wheelbarrow Poets - 4th Friday

Dear Family & Friends,
 
The WCW Poetry Cooperative of Southern Bergen County will be taking a break in July 2012, since our normal night, First Wednesday, falls on Independence Day (July 4th) this year.  We resume our series on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 7 p. m.
 
Have a happy and healthy Independence Day.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE RED WHEELBARROW POETS
Also, please remember that noted poet Jim Klein leads our peer-to-peer poetry workshops (Red Wheelbarrow Poets).
The workshop has a new Wednesday meeting room at the Municipal Building/Borough Hall in Rutherford, NJ (176 Park Ave., Rutherford, NJ), which is handicap accessible.  The workshop meets there on the 3rd and 4th Wednesdays of every month from 7 p. m. to 9 p. m.  The meeting room is the "Blue" room located on the second floor.
 
Please bring 10 to 12 copies of the poem(s) you wish to be workshopped.  The poets pass the poems out; everyone reads his/her poem(s), and then the poets discuss them. Jim Klein is our teacher/workshop moderator.  No dues or rules.
 
If you have any questions, please contact John Barrale by e-mail (john.barrale@gmail.com).  Please do not contact Borough Hall
