“Paper Bag Poetry” and “Poetry on the Move”
at Maine Media Women October 4
An interactive two-part workshop will be offered by Maine Media Women on Saturday, October 4, at the Mobius Center in Damariscotta. Anyone can participate in and enjoy this morning event—no writing experience necessary. The workshop will be led by Rockland poet laureate Carol Bachofner.

“Play and poetry are great partners,” says Bachofner, who has presented the workshop many times to both children and adults. On October 4, she promises to send attendees on a “live poem walking journey, and will have [you] packing a poetry lunch.” The cost of the workshop is $25.00, materials will be provided, and light refreshments will be available.

The morning will begin with sign-in and networking from 8:15 to 8:45, and the workshop will run from 9:00 to about 11:30.

Pre-registration is required: To register, contact MMW Treasurer Carol Jaeger, owner of Salt Bay Art Supply in Damariscotta at 563-8377 or sbart@tidewater.net, or send a check for $25.00, payable to Maine Media Women, to Carol Jaeger, P.O. Box 175, Round Pond, Maine 04564. Deadline for registration is Monday, September 29, 2014.

MMW meetings will be held on the first Saturday of the month (unless it’s Labor Day weekend), from 9:30 to 11:30 or 12:00. All regular meetings will be at one location—the Mobius Center in Damariscotta—and the standard meeting fee will be $10.00 to cover the cost of the room rental.

Most meetings will be very informal and somewhat like the “Member Showcase” meetings MMW has enjoyed for years. Anyone who attends will be able to share what they’re working on, get feedback or critique comments if needed, read or demonstrate something that interests them, etc., in a kind of roundtable format.
In addition, a door prize will be given away at each meeting!

Come join us for networking, fun, and creative support!
