The next gathering of the Woodstock Poetry Society takes place this coming Saturday afternoon at the Golden Notebook starting at 2 p.m. Host Phillip Levine has two great poets, Katherine Burger and Rebecca Daniels, scheduled as the featured readers for this great Hudson Valley poetry series.
Here is more info from the host himself:
Woodstock Poetry Society & Festival as part of the Woodstock Arts Consortium is sponsoring the following poetry event as part of the Woodstock “Second Saturdays” Art Events. For a full listing of “Second Saturday” events, see: www.artsinwoodstock.org.
Poets Katherine Burger and Rebecca Daniels will be the featured readers, along with an open mike when the Woodstock Poetry Society & Festival meets at the Golden Notebook (Upstairs), 29 Tinker Street on Saturday, October 8th at 2pm.
Although primarily a playwright and performer, Katherine Burger has written poetry since childhood. Her poems have been published in Gargolye Magazine, and other, more ephemeral publications. She’s been a featured reader at The Medicine Show Theatre’s Word Play series, and at the Left Bank Bookstore. Her plays have had productions in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin, and the Westport Country Playhouse in Westport Connecticut, as well as over Radio BBC. Katherine is a member of Ulster County’s Actors and Writers, and the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop.
Rebecca Daniels grew up in Greenwich Village during the 40’s and 50’s. She moved to Woodstock, NY in 1974. Her arts-related reviews and feature articles were published weekly in the Woodstock Timesfor 25 years until 2008. During this time, she also had her own business, Writers Support Service. Now retired, Rebecca writes poetry and paints. After five years of focusing on writing haiku, the urge to create longer poems overtook her. Since then, she has workshopped her poems with James Lasdun, Lee Gould, and Susan Sindall. She regularly reads at open mics and meets with peers to critique each other’s poetry.
