Write Here, Write Now – Spring 2021

GRADES 5–8: In this creative writing workshop, young writers will learn how to use different tools of poetry to express their inner feelings and experiences. Participants leave with a chapbook of poems they created, as well as opportunities for submitting their work for contests and publication. Kentucky poet, folklorist, and educator Sarah McCartt-Jackson began writing in second grade when she won a Young Authors Award and became pen pals with American Girls author Valerie Tripp, who helped her publish her first poem. She has taught youth poetry workshops for Greenhouse Writers, Kentucky Arts Council, YesArts,
Young Writers Workshop, and others.
