Poetry Master Class with John Lent @ Caetani Cultural Centre
John Lent presents two Master Classes in Prose and Poetry at the Caetani Cultural Centre!
Masterclasses are 8 weeks in duration, with one three hour session per week plus additional one-on-one time with noted author John Lent.
Class membership is limited to 12 advanced writers working on a manuscript.

Tuition: $425.00 per course.
REGISTER ONLINE NOW FOR WINTER POETRY MASTERCLASS

 
Classes will be a mixture of discussions about contemporary poetry, demonstrations in writing and editing poetry (especially short and long forms), and critiquing sessions that will focus on class members’ work.

There is nothing in the world quite like the density of poetry. It can be so fascinating and demanding, so exquisite. My hope is that we will create a community of poets looking out for one another and pushing ourselves toward publication. Again, this should be the ideal class for any poet who is working away in solitude and could use the support and clarity that a small community of like- minded poets can provide sometimes.

If you are interested in exploring my career as a professional writer, teacher and editor so you understand my background and interests in poetry better, please visit my website: www.johnlent.ca

The BeercanBeiner: The Vernon Winter Carnival @ Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre
Now in its 2nd year, the BeercanBeiner is steeped in Nordic tradition. Well….the BirkeBeinerrennet is a 54KM race that has taken place since 1932 in Lillehammer, Norway. It commemorates a trip made by Birkebeiner Loyalists to save the infant heir to the Norwegian throne, Hakon Hakonsson, in 1206.
Our event takes a slightly frothier route, travelling just over 5KM under headlamp to three rustic venues under the night sky. Sample beers from the region and finish off with a coffee or hot chocolate at the lodge once completed.
Tickets: $20.00 + GST
