BARDIC TRAILS

REGIONAL POETRY PROGRAM

RESTRUCTURING: Under Construction

BARDIC TRAILS ZOOM READINGS

A Collaboration with Wilkinson Public Library

Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for an online gathering of words, wit, and wisdom. Hosted by Wilkinson Public Library’s Joanna Spindler — our current San Miguel County Poet Laureate — each Bardic Trails poetry night will feature a guest poet sharing their work for the first 15-20 minutes. Next Joanna will lead virtual participants in a short question&answer session, followed by a zoom version of our traditional Talking Gourds circle. Each participant will get a turn to tell a story, share a poem (one’s own or a fav from another), comment on the evening, or simply pass. One of the key principles of our program is providing each person a voice. Don’t forget to register early with the Wilkinson Public Library as registration closes the night before. For late joiners, email Emma at emma.youngquist@western.edu.

Register here each month to receive the Zoom link:  telluridelibrary.org/events
