The Black Mountain Author’s Guild will present nationally known poet, Tina Barr, this Third Thursday at 6pm at the Monte Vista Hotel. Ms. Barr will read a twenty minute series of poems set in Black Mountain, and will follow the reading with a discussion of her process for generating ideas in poems, with lots of audience interaction. She will bring in a series of drafts demonstrating her revision process, from rough draft to published poem, and talk about fictionalizing elements so they move from anecdote to the less personal realm of “art”.
Tina Barr’s poems currently appear or are forthcoming in The Gettysburg Review, The Chattahoochee Review, The Valparaiso Poetry Review, The Pisgah Review, Kakalak and The Southern Poetry Anthology, Volume VII (North Carolina). Her book, The Gathering Eye, won the Tupelo Press Editor’s Award and she has published 3 other volumes, all chapbooks, all winners of national publication awards.
