Sundress Academy for the Arts Presents “Poetry of Stillness: A Writing Workshop”

The Sundress Academy for the Arts workshop series is proud to present “Poetry of Stillness.” This workshop will be led by Danielle Hanson on Wednesday July 8, 2020, from 6:00 to 7:30pm ET via Zoom. This workshop is free and open to the public, and you can join us at http://tiny.utk.edu/sundress with password sundress.

A writing experience for people who have been affected by COVID either through work or personal connections, this workshop is designed to focus on a quiet moment and find beauty and peace in something small. Workshop participants will read several peaceful, beautiful poems, and then be guided through writing a poem of their own. No previous writing experience is needed, but even experienced writers should enjoy the time of focus and meditation.

Danielle Hanson is the author of Fraying Edge of Sky (Codhill Press Poetry Prize) and Ambushing Water (Finalist for Georgia Author of the Year Award). She is Poetry Editor for Doubleback Books, and is on the staff of the Atlanta Review. Danielle enjoys gardening and hiking. More about her at daniellejhanson.com.

Sundress Academy for the Arts is a writers residency and arts collective that hosts workshops, retreats, and residencies for writers in all genres including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, journalism, academic writing, playwriting, and more.
