Starstruck: A Poetry Book Project of Astronomical Scale

When: Tue., March 13, 6-8 p.m. 2018

Be a part of something local and universal by signing up to contribute to a new poetry collection and collaboration led by Spokane’s current and past poet laureates. Sitting laureate Mark Anderson and his predecessor Laura Read are leading a series of poetry-writing workshops to create Starstruck. The anthology will be released in April as part of the 20th annual Get Lit! Festival. First up is a field trip out to Spokane Falls Community College’s Planetarium to view the inspiration behind the collection: the stars in our sky. A follow-up workshop the week after (March 20 at 7 pm) at Spark Central is required for all attendees, as is the collection’s launch and reading on April 24. Poets of all levels should consider the chance to be a part of this local project alongside other new and notable writers of our region’s deeply talented literary scene.
