SCCC to Host Betty June Silconas Poetry Festival

in Home Page, News

Sussex County Community College will host the Betty June Silconas Poetry Festival on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm with registration beginning at 9:30 am in the Art Gallery. Workshops will be conducted from 10:00 am until 12 pm and a book fair will be held throughout the day.

Workshops will include:

Out to Launch: Getting Started – Catherine “Cat” Doty, Workshop Leader
The writer’s connection (i.e. the butt and the chair) is step one, and there are countless ways to go from there. Using various ways to jump-start new work, participants will begin a dozen poems in the hopes that they develop into a dozen good poems. Attendees should come with a sense of humor and adventure; leave with a passel of potential poems.

OO EE OO AH AH: The Psychology of Sound in Poetry – Susanna Rich, Workshop Leader
In poetry, especially, sound not only imitates meaning, it creates it. In this workshop, participants will focus on how acoustics enliven the reading, writing, and performing of poetry. Following a series of sonic explorations, they will write poetry based on sound frequencies.

The Poetry of Place – Edwin Romond, Workshop Leader
Robert Frost writes of returning to a special place “in the grey disguise of years / seeking the ache of memory here.” William Wordsworth’s revisiting Tintern Abbey unleashed a flood of recollection that resulted in one of the great poems of British literature. For participants, too, going back to a certain physical location could be an emotional catalyst for some powerful poetry. In this workshop attendees will use a short fantasy journey with music to remember one certain place in their past, and all that it evokes, as the focus of their writing.

12:00 noon to 1:00 pm: Lunch, Book Signings and Open Mic
9:30 am to 4:00 pm: Book Fair
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm: Readings by Doty, Rich and Romond
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm: Launch of The Stillwater Review Vol.4 and Reading

Workshop Fee is $10. Advanced Registration recommended to reserve a spot. All readings are free as is the book fair. Local poets are welcome to bring their books to sell. For more information contact Send workshop fee to Priscilla Orr, Director, Betty June Silconas Poetry Center, Sussex County Community College, One College Hill Rd., Newton, NJ 07860. Make check out to SCCC Foundation and put poetry festival in the memo line, and indicate which workshop you want to attend. Send book fair information to
