Lawrence Berger, Word Dancing: Instant Poetry

June 15 @ EST 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free – $20.00

What is instant poetry? Some of the intriguing works in this collection were created by the author based upon people calling out words and sentences at his interactive poetry readings. Upon hearing these audience contributions, he fashioned a poem built around them. Other poems in the collection were written around the event described in the poem. Instant Poetry (Just Add Words!) offers a unique experience in poetry and creativity.

Lawrence R. Berger is an award-winning poet, promoter, author, and speaker. He created the performance character “Laughing” Larry Berger in 1999 and has been giving presentations ever since.  Word Dancing: Instant Poetry (Just add words!): Volume 3 (Cyberwit.Net, 2023) is his latest collection . It has been created from work done from 2020-2023. The manuscript was a finalist in the 2023 San Gabriel Valley Poetry festival’s poetry awards book division.
