Meeting Announcement — Denton Poets’ Assembly

Denton Poets’ Assembly will meet at 10am on January 19th, 2013 at the Emily Fowler Central Library: 502 Oakland Street, Denton, Texas. Visitors are welcome!

Denton Poets’ Assembly members last met on December 15th. The group shared their writing assignment poems for a Christmas-themed Triolet after a lesson given in November by Paul Holcomb. Free choice poems were read during the December as well. Paul Holcomb presented a lesson on Blank Verse. Members will share their poem assignments in February.

We were honored to recognize T. Jervis of Oakpoint as the First Place Winner of the December Poetry Society of Texas monthly contest.

DPA members enjoyed our November brunch so much that we had a holiday themed brunch again during the December meeting. It was a great way to share snacks, food and poetry for our final 2012 meeting.

Annie Neugebauer will present a lesson on how to create a personal website in WordPress. This a great way for poet’s to share selected works with the public and poets everywhere!

Becca Hines updated DPA on the status of submissions for the  2013 “Merging Visions” collaborative show with VAST. These Exhibits will be set up at 3 Denton public libraries starting March 28th, 2013.

Again, thanks to Annie Neugebauer, for updating the DPA website. Visitors and members are encouraged to use our Amazon link at the top of the page for all your shopping. A percentage of every purchase through this link goes to DPA funds. DPA website is http://dentonpoetsassembly.weebly.com/

  1. It’s great to see you continuing with your poetry and getting involved in a creative local community. Have a lovely meeting, Rich, and may you be inspired. 🙂

  2. Do to a prior commitment with my pillow, I wont be making it today. Also, I can’t make the February meeting unless my co-author is willing to take the reigns at the sci/fi convention Saturday morning. I’ll work on him. If you can, send me the assignment for February. I still stuck on the January one. My brain just can’t get wrapped around it. Probably because we are in the editing mode for the new release. Have fun!

    • Thanks for dropping by Jeff. We didn’t have an assignment today. Had a presentation on creating a poets’ website.
      Feb assignment, Blank Verse; non-rhyming lines of iambic pentameter. Will send info.

  3. I thought that was this month. Yep, need to take better notes. Forgot about the website this month. I’m sure it was informative. I do have the notes for next month. I’m finding this assignment a bit challening. If I’m not able to attend and you don’t mind, I will send you what I write for the February meeting. Enjoy your Sunday.

  4. Feel free to send what you have Jeff. If you’d like me to read it on your behalf, I’d be glad to do so. Thanks, have a good Sunday as well!
