Poetry in the Park

IMG_2418

There’s still plenty of activity at Buffalo Peaks Ranch this coming month, but we’re already looking forward to what’s ahead in September — such a glorious time in South Park as the air grows crisp, and the leaves start to turn. This September’s Ranch workshops are all devoted to poetry. Come join us!

Please note: Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we are very happy to be offering special Student/Teacher Discounts to both of September’s poetry workshops!

Here’s what we have coming up:

Saturday, September 17th, 9:00am – 3:00pm: Poet Gary Schroeder will be offering Haiku Moments/Haiku Mind, a poetry workshop perfectly set in the high mountain grasslands of South Park. Gary and his small band of students will explore the Haiku experience, enjoying brief Haiku hikes across the ranch.

Gary Schroeder is the author of four volumes of poetry, and his new collection of Haiku, After Rain, is forthcoming from Folded Word Press.

Jodie and Gary are wonderful teachers,  expert in creating such a warm and welcoming environment. We feel lucky to have them both at Buffalo Peaks Ranch!
