Spend a day writing poetry and improving existing poems! This one-day poetry seminar is creative writing meets group private tutoring. You can bring up to three poems in for supportive and constructive critique.

The first part of the day is spent getting creative and writing new poems through creative writing prompts designed to revive your inner poet. Then we break for lunch (bring a sack lunch) and after lunch we participate in a group critique session where writers can have their poetry critiqued by Sanora and other group members in an orderly, supportive, and guided manner.

Today in history

 

Today is Wednesday, Jan. 2, the second day of 2013. There are 363 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1989, Lance and Beth Quinn of Newhall became the first parents of the year when their son, Lance Benjamin Quinn was born on a Monday morning. Little Lance was healthy, weighing 7 pounds, 14 ounces.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 2, 1788, Georgia became the fourth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution.

Ten years ago:  President George W. Bush, seeking to counter Democratic criticisms that his economic policies favored the rich, said the economic stimulus plan he was going to unveil the following week would focus on jobs and the unemployed. Sydney Omarr, the astrologer to the stars whose horoscopes appeared in more than 200 newspapers, died in Santa Monica, at 76.

Five years ago: The Justice Department opened a full criminal investigation into the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes. (A special prosecutor later cleared the CIA’s former top clandestine officer and others.) Pakistan pushed back parliamentary elections until Feb. 18, a six-week delay prompted by rioting that followed the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto. Oil prices soared to $100 a barrel for the first time. Late-night talk shows returned to the air two months into a writers strike. (David Letterman and Craig Ferguson had reached agreements to allow writers to work on their shows; Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel returned without theirs.)

One year ago: A gas pipeline in central Syria exploded; the government blamed “terrorists” while the opposition accused officials of playing on fears of religious extremism and terrorism to rally support behind President Bashar Assad. No. 3 Oklahoma State beat No. 4 Stanford 41-38 in overtime in the Fiesta Bowl. No. 6 Oregon beat No. 9 Wisconsin 45-38 in the Rose Bowl.
