Reading into Poetry with Melinda LePere: Pages Bookshop, 19560 Grand River Ave, Detroit, MI 48223, Mondays, October 9, 16, (no class on October 23), 30, November 6, 13 & 20, 12:30pm-2:30pm. This class is for the curious and the experienced. We will prod the 2017 Best American Poetry Anthology for kick starter juice to inspire our own writing. Detroit’s own Vievee Francis and Matthew Olzmann are included in this edition. This is a friendly way to take your pulse as both a reader and a writer of poetry. We promise to not tie any poems to a chair and beat the sense out of them! Plan on sharing a poem you have written each class and expect gentle feedback. We are very pleased to offer this class in historic Rosedale Park in Detroit. There is ample parking. We are hosted by both Pages Book Shop (right next door to us) and Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC). We hope to have neighbors, Detroiters and pilgrims from the suburbs attend the class.  Mindy LePere holds an MFA from Vermont College in poetry. Prior to retirement, she taught school in Detroit, including poetry, for 20 years.
