The Sundress Academy for the Arts is excited to present Poetry Xfit. This generative workshop event will take place on Sunday, January 17th, 2021 via Zoom. Join us at the link tiny.utk.edu/sundress with password “safta”.
Poetry Xfit isn’t about throwing tires or heavy ropes, but the idea of confusing our muscles is the same. This generative workshop series will give you prompts, rules, obstructions, and more to write three poems in two hours.
Writers will write together for thirty minutes, be invited to share new work, and then given a new set of prompts. The idea isn’t that we are writing perfect final drafts, but instead creating clay that can then be edited and turned into art later.
Prose writers are also welcome to attend!
While this is a free workshop, donations can be made to the Sundress Academy for the Arts here: https://sundress-publications.square.site/product/donate-to-sundress/107?cs=true
All donations received will be split with the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, a nonprofit museum featuring a range of local & national African-American history exhibits & artifacts here in Knoxville, TN.
