The Sundress Academy for the Arts is excited to present Poetry Xfit hosted by Victoria Mullins. This generative workshop event will take place on Sunday, August 22nd, 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. Prose writers are also welcome to attend!
Victoria Mullins is the Staff Director for Sundress Academy for the Arts and is East TN born. She is currently working on her first collection of poetry and is enjoying all the learning and toiling over it. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing, mediocre cooking, and over preparing.
