Life/Lines: Your Autobiography in Verse – Fall 2022

In this workshop, you will learn how to transcribe your life into poetry. We will read examples and write after generative exercises to get at the root of your path, whatever that has been and whatever it might be. Be prepared to conjure up where you are going and where you have been.

Sarah McCartt-Jackson is a Kentucky poet, folklorist, and educator whose poetry books include: Stonelight, Calf Canyon, Vein of Stone, and Children Born on the Wrong Side of the River.

This class is suitable for all levels.
