Central Coast: Art Poetica

January 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Napa County Poet Laureate on Art Poetica

Poetry is the red-headed step child of literary arts–it doesn’t play by the rules, it’s hard to understand, and it refuses gainful employment. But the best books borrow tools from poetry. It informs and refines writing, and reading and writing poetry can teach us to look at words and sentences with new eyes. What can the practice of poetry bring to your writing work, and what can it bring to our lives?

Jeremy Benson is the current Poet Laureate of Napa County. In addition to poems, he has also written novels, short stories, articles, personal essays, stand-up comedy routines, short films, and many letters. Jeremy endeavors to cultivate a rich community of writers, readers, and artists, whether as a participant, patron, or planner. He has emceed open mics, curated readings, hosted craft-ins, and led workshops. Jeremy is also a founding participant of the Broken Nose Collective, an annual exchange of hand-made chapbooks.
