    Poetry fest goes for laughs; Berman closes speaker series

At least that is the focus of the "Humorous Poetry: Classic and Current" workshop by Sarah Brown Weitzman beginning at 12:30 p.m. May 9 at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach, 561-243-7922. Cost is $10 at the door. Weitzman will show how humorous poetry has a long history, from the insult poetry of Catullus to contemporary poets such as Billy Collins. Participants will receive copies of all the poems and will be encouraged to discuss what makes a poem funny. The workshop is part of the year-round events sponsored by the Palm Beach Poetry Festival, palmbeachpoetryfestival.org.
