May 20, 2017 – Catalog Poetry   Facilitated by: Laurel Becker

Laurel Jean Becker will be presenting a workshop on Catalog Poems.  A catalog poem brings together many different images and presents them for your attention in a poem format.  Think of a catalog poem like a store catalog that is filled with pictures of almost anything in the world you’d want to buy. Catalog poems are often set to music.

Randy Becker and Amy Jo Becker will be presenting a musical performance using songs that have catalog poetry in lyrics.  Randy is part of Look Both Ways band, and Amy Jo has a strong performance background. After Laurel’s presentation, you will have an opportunity to write your own catalog poem.

Location: Peebles, 909 Wadsworth Blvd., Lakewood, CO, 80214, 2nd floor. The building is on the west side of Wadsworth Blvd. 909 Wadsworth Blvd, Lakewood, CO 80214-4510 – MapQuest.
