Prosetry – Winter 2021

In this generative workshop, we examine the intersections of poetry and prose. We discuss the differences and similarities as we read works by renowned poets, working with different elements of craft each week. By looking at the poems and prose in relationship to each other, participants will be able to approach drafting and revision of their own work with new insights and inspiration. 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.
