Keep St. Pete Lit is pleased to name the second recipient of the LitSpace St. Petersburg Writers Residency, Alison Stone.
In this experiential workshop with Ms. Stone, we will explore using other art forms to stimulate poems. Whether the inspiration is a work of visual art or a desire for revisionist mythmaking, other genres have served to spark poets for centuries. We will examine some viewpoints and strategies used by a variety of poets, and then generate work using in-class prompts. There will be time for sharing and feedback if desired.
