Poets Richard Gegick and Bob Pajich will “Get Lit” with members of the Trafford Writing Workshop who will be launching new chapbooks at The Yoga Deck in Trafford.

Poets Richard Gegick and Bob Pajich will “Get Lit” with members of the Trafford Writing Workshops who will be launching new chapbooks at 7 p.m. June 23 at The Yoga Deck in Trafford.

There will be readings which will spotlight Trafford authors, along with Pajich, author of “The Trolley Man” (Low Ghost Press) and Gegick, an award-winning author and Trafford native whose work has been widely published in national journals. His new chapbook, “Moons Over My Hammy” was recently released by Zigeller Boy Press.

Trafford Workshop members who will be reading from their own chapbooks — small booklets — include Rebecca Jung, Lewis Ruffing, Mary Warwick and Sarah W. Wood. An open mic, book sales and author signings and a reception will follow.

The Trafford Writing Workshop meets every Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Yoga Deck, 418 Cavitt Ave. Workshop leader and Trafford native Lori Jakiela runs the event at The Yoga Deck, a healing space offering energy flow and prana yin yoga classes, tea leaf readings, energy and meditation sessions, locally foraged teas, art, vintage items and upcycled goods for sale. The Yoga Deck is owned by Tonya Sprtiz Kapis, an acclaimed yoga instructor and Trafford native.

Suggested donation for the “Get Lit” event is $5.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
