Life is good down here in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The FAWC is the perfect place to soak yourself in poetry and all the writing arts. This week I’m participating in a workshop led by Victoria Redel. We are  writing every day in and out of class. We’ll have a sheaf of poems ripe for revision by the end of the week.

Tonight our assignment is to write a poem of couplets and also a poem totally made of one syllable words. Earlier we altered nursery rhymes and wrote about our education as a poet.

Every evening there are talks open to the students and the public: readings of poetry, fiction, memoir or play-writing as well as talks from the visual artists.

In addition to the arts, the shops and restaurants are on the top of any list for good food and interesting wares. And don’t miss the Pilgrim Monument or the monument/plaque on Bradford Street listing the names of all those who came over on the Mayflower.

The fabulous town of Provincetown, come and learn more about your American heritage and the arts.
