Poetry Writing Workshop

Date: Nov 27, 2018 7:00 pm
Poetry Writing Workshop meets on the 4th Tuesday of each momth at 7 p.m.

Our November meeting on Tuesday the 27th will be hosted by Margaret Vann at her home at 1808 Covewood Dr. (35801). This is located off the upper end of Big Cove Road, which runs parallel with Governors Drive going east up the mountain. The most direct way to get to Covewood is to go up Big Cove from the intersection of California Street and Governor's Dr. near Huntsville Hospital East. Drive several blocks upward and turn left on Covewood. 1808 will be on the left coming from this direction. 
The HLA membership year follows the general months of the school year. We are reminded that HLA dues are due during the fall. The year will conclude with the annual banquet in May even though the poetry group meets every month on the fourth Tuesday except in December. 
Our group's year culminates with the Poet's Choice reading and chapbook at the Huntsville Public Library, main branch, on April 28th, 2019. This will be the 27th annual Poet's Choice reading. Please select your choice of a poem to include in this event and chapbook and turn it in to Margaret in upcoming weeks. The event and the chapbook showcase our year's production in the poetry group. Your poem should be one that has been through the forging fire of one of our meetings during the previous year. Margaret will begin receiving these Poet's Choice selections at the meeting Tuesday evening. Margaret's e-mail address is
If you have trouble getting to 1808 Covewood next Tuesday evening, Margaret's phone number is 256-533-4213. My phone number is 256-520-0811. Our meetings are from 7:00 to 9:00. Looking forward to seeing you and your poem. Bring at least a dozen photocopies of the poem you plan to share that night. --Jimmy
