POET CAMP Book Club

Poet Camp Book Club

A progressive and generative book club! Each quarter we’ll read a different book together.

Here’s how each round will go:

MONTH 1
(JULY)

Read!

Book club book is announced! Joy! Excitement! Those who sign up will receive a set of questions that we’ll use to frame our thinking the rest of the time we spend with this book.

MONTH 2
(AUGUST)

Write!

We’ll read! We’ll ponder! We’ll post favorite quotes in a book club members only Poet Camp page. Sarah will send a few prompts inspired by this book to encourage you to generate work inspired by our reading.

MONTH 3
(SEPTEMBER)

Share!

We’ll gather together on Zoom for an evening of sharing our thoughts about the book, and a read-around of poems inspired by the book we’ve read.

Our next Book Club book is…

Few writers have the ability to make my heart break and sing with joy and gratitude in the space of a brief essay. Ross Gay’s Inciting Joy is the perfect summer read, finding so much delight in the broken and beautiful world we share. You’ll be so glad to have read this book, which encourages warm community and loving listening from its first word to its last.

I highly recommend the audiobook to this, which is an award winner in its own right!
