LexPoMo 2014

Eagle Creek Writers Group

Erato Pio-Clementino Inv317 Erato, muse of erotic poetry
By virtue of last year’s mayoral decree, June is officially Lexington Poetry Month. Various events are planned at book stores, coffee shops, libraries, and other venues throughout the month, including open mic nights, public readings, workshops, and a month-long poetry writing challenge.

For more information, visit the Lexington Poetry Month page at Accents Publishing’s website: http://accents-publishing.com/blog/lexington-poetry-month-2014/. You’ll also find links to a calendar of events and a listing of poets who’ve officially signed up to participate in the challenge.

Last year, more than 75 local poets participated and over 1,000 poems were posted. A number of those were collected into a commemorative anthology, Her Limestone Bones, and another anthology is planned for this year.

You’ve got nothing to lose, so make a sacrifice to Calliope, Euterpe, Erato, Thalia, Polyhymnia — whoever your muse may be — and sign up!

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
