More info:  Sam’s Place Hosts Envoi Poetry Circle #1, Featuring Violinmaker’s Lament and Cutthroats and other poems. Envoi Poetry Circles are modeled after Robert Kroetsch’s creative writing workshops circa 1979. The poet distributes the work to be discussed prior to the workshop, which everyone reads. The poet reads some of the work at the beginning of the poetry circle, then takes a breath and listens as everyone in the talking circle has a turn to talk about their response to the work. Then the poet responds and discussion ensues.
