April 15 at Severson Dells

Hi Everyone,

Meet us on the porch! 8786 Montague Road, Rockford, IL 61102. 1-3PM on Sunday, April 15, 2018.

This is a quick reminder that we are meeting on the porch at Severson Dells Nature Center for our April meeting.  This is the fourth year we are celebrating National Poetry Month at the Dells.

Writers are to dress for the weather, bring their new writing that features an excellent setting, and share it with the group.  1300 words or less if it’s prose.  Fifty lines or less if it’s poetry.  It can be an excerpt.

After that, writers may either write on the porch or wander into the woods to write new poetry.  Writers will meet back on the porch and share their new writing with the group.  There will be cash prizes for the best poems, adult and youth categories!

If you have never been to a Guild meeting before, this is a great way to break the ice, quite literally if all this snow and cold continues.  These meetings are free and open to all who write.  All ages and abilities welcome.

We hope you come celebrate National Poetry Month with us at Severson Dells! Until then, here is a link to “I Have a Dream” by Sharon Nesbit-Davis. Her writing is especially poignant as we remember Dr. King’s words on the fifty-year anniversary of his death.
