Poet Clemens Starck is Visiting Klindt's Booksellers and Holding a Poetry Workshop, Friday, May 3rd

The Oregon Book Award winner Clemens Starck will be visiting, reading and book signing to celebrate his new release, Cathedrals and Parking Lots on Friday, May 3, at 5pm.

Clemens Starck is a Princeton drop-out, former merchant seaman, retired union carpenter and construction foreman. Starck’s poetry celebrates daily living in clear, beautiful language. Publisher’s Weekly says, “Probing work and family life, Starck displays a deep respect for mundane and, seemingly, randomly chosen, subjects: work boots, archery, a car engine, cutting grass.” Dana Jennings, of the New York Times Art Beat, says Starck is, “an essential plainspoken poet of work.” 

Starck’s poetry has been published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He is the author of seven book of poems, including the award-winning Journeyman’s Wages(1995). The others are: Studying Russian on Company Time (1999), China Basin (2002),Traveling Incognito(2004), Rembrandt, Chainsaw (2011) and Old Dogs, New Tricks (2016).  Starck has three grown children and  lives outside of Dallas in the foothills of the Coast Range in western Oregon.

Poetry Out Loud: Speaking the Poem. Workshop with Clemens Starck, Friday, May 3rd, 1:30pm - 3:30PM

In addition, Clemens Starck will also offer a poetry writing workshop earlier in the day at Klindt’s. Learn to exploit your unique voice to better develop your own poetry and to connect with a listening audience. Bring a poem, your own or a favorite. Instructor will also furnish poems to practice with. Refreshments provided. This workshop has limited seating and $40 pre-registration is required.
