A logo for the event. Across the top, it reads "Generative Writing Event", then "tiny.utk.edu/sundress" and "Password: safta". In the center, it reads "2-4 PM EST", then the logo of Poetry Xfit, then "February 21st". Along the bottom, it reads "Hosted by Emily Capettini", then "All donations will be split with our community partner Next Step Initiative." The logo is hexagonal, with long sides on the left and right that blend into the lettering.

The Sundress Academy for the Arts is excited to present Poetry Xfit hosted by Emily Capettini. This generative workshop event will take place on Sunday, February 21st, 2021 from 2 to 4 pm EST 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.
