Event description

Description

In Prosetry, participants will examine how prose and poetry interact by reading essays by renowned poets, dealing with different elements of craft and poetic contemplation each week. Essays by writers such as Mary Oliver, Mary Ruefle, Ada Limon, and Richard Hugo, among others, will offer insight into poetic technique and lyrical explorations of a poet’s experiences as a writer. Additionally, we will read poems by the poets whose craft essays we read. By looking at the poems and essays in relationship to each other, students will be able to approach drafting and revision of their own work with new insights and inspiration. Each week, participants will be challenged with generative writing prompts inspired by that week’s readings to create new works.

Instructor: Kentucky poet, folklorist, educator, and naturalist Sarah McCartt-Jackson has received honors from and been published by Copper Nickel, Bellingham Review, Indiana Review, Journal of American Folklore, The Maine Review, Tidal Basin Review, NANO Fiction, Bellingham Review, and others. She is the recipient of an Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council, and has served as artist- in-residence for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Shotpouch Cabin (Oregon State University). She is the author of Stonelight (Airlie Press), which won the 2017 Airlie Prize, and two chapbooks, Vein of Stone (Porkbelly Press) and Children Born on the Wrong Side of the River (Casey Shay Press), which won the 2015 Mary Ballard Poetry Prize. She works on a farm in Louisville.
