On the Line – Summer 2021

Put it all on the line in this poetry workshop that explores all things poetic line: line breaks, line lengths, line heights, nil lines, and writing between the lines. Participants will read and discuss a variety of poetic lines, then generate poems using techniques they have learned. For all levels.

Kentucky poet, folklorist, and educator Sarah McCartt-Jackson’s books include Stonelight (which won the Weatherford Award, Phillip H. McMath Award, and Airlie Prize), Calf Canyon, Children Born on the Wrong Side of the River (winner of the Mary Ballard Poetry Prize), and Vein of Stone. She has received fellowships and grants from the Kentucky Arts Council, Academy of American Poets, Kentucky Foundation for Women, and Barbara Deming Memorial Award.
