New poems, new books and Poetry Alive workshop

2016-Poet-ALive-workshop-allOn May 20, I had Poetry Alive workshop at Francis Libermann school (Toronto) . It was the fourth time to visit the school. The teachers and students were very glad to have me there. They liked my Poetry Alive workshop very much and bought my books. Now they have “Wings Toward Sunlight”, “Inhaling the Silence” and “Seven Nights with the Chinese Zodiac”. They had “Inhaling…” before and prepared some questions but we didn’t have time for haiku and the Q/A section. Maybe next time… Thanks!

Glad to know my class for Magic Monday at Visual Arts Mississauga is full. Looking forward to meeting all of you and write and share poems together on June 6,2016
