from all the borders of itself, / burst like a star: making poems from objects
Join Lisa Bickmore, Professor of English, Salt Lake Community College and author of three books of poetry: Haste (Signature Books), flicker (Elixir Press, winner of Antivenom Prize), and Ephemerist (Red Mountain Press) for an afternoon exploring and drawing inspiration from the riches of the Museum in this poetry writing workshop.
Then use your freshly-honed writing skills to enter the Community Writing Center’s Annual 30 Poems in 30 Days Writing Competition presented this year in partnership with the Natural History Museum of Utah and the Salt Lake City Public Library. Write 30 poems based on daily prompts throughout the month of April. Winners will have a chapbook of their original poems produced by the CWC. Register by April 30 online or in person at the CWC for just $5 (fee can be waived on request).
