Join for the Summer 2024 quarter’s Poet Camp Book Club! We’re reading/discussing/writing towards

Inciting Joy by Ross Gay

““It didn’t take me long to learn that the discipline or practice of writing these essays occasioned a kind of delight radar. Or maybe it was more like the development of a delight muscle. Something that implies that the more you study delight, the more delight there is to study.”

– Ross Gay, Inciting Joy




How it works…
Month 1: Read! (July)
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: Write! (August)
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: Share! (September)
We’ll gather on Google Meet for an evening of sharing our thoughts about the book, and a read-around of poems inspired by the book we’ve read.

Each quarter costs $25 to join. Commitment is quarter by quarter. Each season will have a separate signup, and we’ll be reading a different type of book, and unthemed except for Sarah falling in love with it, and wanting to share!

*This book club is for adult Poet Campers, and the prompts and discussion will be geared towards that audience.

Please use the address where you prefer to receive the Google Meet link and anchor texts in advance, and the prompts and bonus packet after.
