Saturday Guest Poets

I'm starting a new Saturday morning job this...Saturday...and for the next nine weeks. I will be teaching Creative Writing to middle schoolers (grades 7-9) at the Chiao Hsin Chinese Language School on 2231 Findlay Ave. in Monterey Park.

So...I just want to thank the poets below ahead of time for volunteering to be Guest Poets. I know my students will be greatly benefitted and inspired...just like the many times before at Occidental College. The poets will visit for the most part between 11am and 12pm, share three poems each, and answer any questions the kids may have.

Saturday, September 11th, 11am to 12pm - THAINE ALLISON, JR. & CALOKIE
Saturday, September 18th, 11am to 12pm - PETE JUSTUS & MIKE THE POET
Saturday, September 25th, 11am to 12pm - TOTI O'BRIEN & PATRICK JEFFRIES

Saturday, October 2nd, 11am to 12pm - E. R. SANCHEZ
Saturday, October 9th, 10:30am - 11am - MONA JEAN CEDAR
Saturday, October 9th, 11am to 12pm - ALICE PERO
Saturday, October 16th, 11am to 12pm - NEIL AITKEN & GENIE NAKANO
Saturday, October 23rd, 11am to 12pm - LYNNE BRONSTEIN & JAMES MAVERICK

Once again, thank you to all who have volunteered to visit my students in the past...may we all have poetic futures!
