Led by Linda Hasselstrom, the author of eleven published books and editor of numerous others, participants will receive group and individual instruction, an analysis of their writings, the opportunity to share their efforts with classmates and the public. They will also visit The Badger Hole in Custer State Park, view the biographical drama, "Mountain Thunder", about Badger's life, hear his poetry read in Badger Clark's own words, and walk in his footsteps on the Historic Badger Clark Trail.
Attendees should bring their own writing materials and may bring examples of their work for analysis.
The workshop will begin at noon on Thursday with a sack lunch at the Badger Hole in Custer State Park. Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22, the workshops begin at 8:30 am and will be conducted each day until 4:30 pm. Friday evening participants will attend a meal and open microphone at the Songbird Cafe at 5:30 pm in Custer. Participants are encouraged to recite their own poetry as well as favorite standards.
Registration for the two-day workshop is $100 per person. Attendance is limited; registrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The non-refundable registration fee must be received by September 1. Because of the fall activities scheduled for the same week-end in the Black Hills it is recommended that participants make their hotel reservations in Custer immediately.
