Online Poetry Workshop with Len Lawson: “A Poetics of Place”
The Poetry Society of SC presents an online Poetry Workshop with Len Lawson, “A Poetics of Place,” from 10AM until noon via Zoom. Lawson has received fellowships from Callaloo, Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Weymouth Center for the Arts. In describing his workshop, Len writes: “What are the elements that define our places and, in turn, define ourselves? Poets can define a location, city, or region with intricate detail or intense emotion by intimately acquainting us with their experiences. Through the poetry of Phillip Levine, bell hooks, and others, this workshop will examine the elements of place in poetry and guide participants in developing or even redefining places as their own.” Registration is required at the Society website (www.poetrysocietysc.org) to receive the Zoom link for access.
