Mellwood Arts – Poetry Workshop – Louisville, KY

Traveling Through the Dark: A Poetry Workshop

Louisville Literary Arts, with Kentucky Poet Laureate, Frederick Smock, presents this generative workshop – beginning with some remarks about our origins with poetry as children – will explore how to generate new, free verse poems by looking to various sources of inspiration: nature, our personal pasts. We will follow writing prompts with conversations about how William Stafford generated work. Students need bring only writing paper, pencils, and a sense of curiosity and wonder.
