Burn Thompson Writers Group Poetry Reading on Zoom April 10
WHAT: Virtual Poetry Reading by the Burn Thompson Writing Group
WHEN: Saturday, April 10th at 4:30pm
WHERE: Zoom https://juneau.zoom.us/j/91070130889
DESCRIPTION: In celebration of National Poetry Month, members of Juneau’s Burn Thompson Writers Group will read new works of original poetry.
The Burn Thompson Writing Group is named in honor of writer and long-time group member Burn Thompson. Thompson came to Juneau in the late 1980s from Roanoke, Virginia, and took charge of a flagging writing group, nursing it back to health. Thompson had an undergraduate degree in physics and graduate degrees in creative writing, a rare mix. The group was named in her honor after her death in October 2013.
Members of the Burn Thompson Writing Group meet bimonthly to read and critique their work. During meetings, writers share their work and offer each other gentle critiques. The group is open to the public.
