J. Diego Frey's Pocketbucket Lists: Get a slice at Lighthouse Writers Workshop

J. Diego Frey has a Pocketbucket List for you.
If you're a typical Denver Tom, Dick or Harry, there's a chance you have no idea what goes on at Lighthouse Writers Workshop, a haven for the literary ensconced in the historic Milheim Mansion in Capitol Hill. But the first annual Lighthouse Writers Workshop Community Book Fair -- two days of free book talks, readings and a book sale -- should put an end to that. Regardless of your skill level, if taking a writing class is on your bucket list, you'll want to go.

Speaking of which, Lighthouse youth poetry instructor J. Diego Frey, who in his more delinquent moments composes a kind of stand-up comedy haiku he calls PocketBucket Lists, will be selling small booklets of them at the fair. What are they, exactly? Here are his ground rules:

#123: The Rules Of Pocketbucket Lists

--The list is not finished until it has at least 3 items.
--No judging.
--Pass the pen with the list.

#124: Pocketbucket Lists (WTF???)

--Should the need arise, any list can be called upon to serve as a "bucket list."
--Should one wish to have a list upon oneself at all times (just in case) keeping the list "pocket-sized" is not a bad call.
--Pocketbucket, pocketbucket, pocketbucket...just say that a bunch of times

#125: Pocketbucket Lists (How To Play)

--As with any good game, this one should be played with an eye toward learning something...about the game, or about the others playing it, or about oneself, or about whatever the hell the damn list is about.
--All players should completely ignore any critical voices (either internal or external) telling you that you're not good enough to play the game.
--Fuck those voices! They're only useful when they're telling you that you can't reason with alligators.

Ready to bite? We think you will be, after reading a few of his favorites. You never know when you'll need sage advice on how to face your future.
