Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS - Inkberry is offering a four-week doggerel course taught by local poet and humorist Seth Brown beginning Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The class will cover basic doggerel theory, limericks, Ogden Nash and how to create personalized light verse for special events, such as birthdays, weddings, toasts, etc.

Brown is a contributing editor to the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form, writes weekly limericks for BBSpot.com, and previously held a rhyming column in the Providence Journal. His current column for the North Adams Transcript, "The Pun Also Rises," won second place in the New England Press Association's 2006 humor column awards. He is the author of three books, most recently "Rhode Island Curiosities" (Globe Pequot Press, 2007). He is fluent in pig Latin, which is his favorite language because everything
rhymes. His Web site is RisingPun.com.

The course is geared to beginning writers and will meet at Inkberry, 61 Main St., Room 223, on Tuesdays through Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. To register: 413-664-0775 or www.Inkberry.org. The four sessions are $75 ($67.50 for Inkberry
members).

Inkberry promotes the literary arts in the Berkshires with events and community partnerships that celebrate and support writing and reading. Inkberry is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
