Leslie Gerber (http://www NULL.lesliegerber NULL.net/) is the author of two poetry chapbooks, Lies of the Poets and The Edge of Sleep. They have been acclaimed by such well-known writers as Gail Godwin, Billy Collins, Eamon Grennan, Charles Baxter, and Robert Olen Butler. A relative newcomer to poetry, he has successfully adopted writing methods described by poets C.K. Williams and Billy Collins. Along with reading a selection of his poetry, he will share what he has learned about how to keep writing.
