MN Reads: "there's always something to save from a bad draft" and other wise words from poets

Duluth Poetry Chapter/Facebook
/

Last weekend's DriftWords event found poets ranging up and down the shore at Wisconsin Point: writing poems with sticks in the sand, with markers on driftwood and even with pebbles on the beach.

Next week, it’s a writing event with the theme of "bodily autonomy," loosely translated as "the choices you make with your body."

The Duluth Poetry Chapter is taking poetry out of its ivory tower and rarefied atmosphere and bringing it to the street ... and the beach ... and the coffee shop, in an effort to stretch its boundaries past an art form and into a tool you can throw into your "coping" toolkit.

More information about the Duluth Poetry Chapter and a list of their upcoming events is here.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
