About this Event

Love is Like a Butterfly: A Dolly Parton Poetry Workshop 4-week Online Workshop led by award-winning poet Lynn Melnick

4 sessions | Wednesday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 PM EST | April 7, 14, 21, 28 | $120

What do the songs of legendary singer-songwriter Dolly Parton have to teach us about craft, about writing a range of emotions, experiences, and points of view into our poems? In this workshop we will explore the songs and cultural impact of Dolly Parton and use these as an inspiration for writing our own poems, via related prompts. At the conclusion of the four week workshop, Broadway actors will read your work (and maybe sing some Dolly songs!) in a special Zoom event!

Lynn Melnick is the author of the poetry collections Refusenik (forthcoming 2022), Landscape with Sex and Violence (2017), and If I Should Say I Have Hope (2012), all with YesYes Books. I've Had to Think Up a Way to Survive, a book about Dolly Parton that is also a bit of a memoir, is forthcoming from University of Texas Press in 2022.
