Poems That Happen - A Talk on Process with Buck Downs

How well does your writing habit fit in your daily life? When you suddenly find you have some free time, are you ready to write?

Poems That Happen is a workflow process for poets who want to streamline their practice and write effectively within the context of a busy life of work, etc.

Organized around three core principles -- modularity, portability, and scalability -- and four stages of action -- capture, transcribe, clarify, and publish -- PTH is a creative bootstrap that counters writer’s block and creates a sense of forward momentum.

Buck will talk about his experience in developing PTH and demonstrate examples of each stage. Poems That Happen is recommended for anyone who finds they have no time to write, or who struggle to write when they do find the time.

Buck Downs is a poet and executive writing coach in Washington, D.C. His latest book is Tachycardia: Poems 2010-2012, from Edge Books.
