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, January 16, 2022, from 2 to 4 pm EST via Zoom. Join us at the link tiny.utk.edu/sundress with the 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 a writer, bookseller, and avid reader from Knoxville, TN and has worked with SAFTA for two years. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing, pasta cooking, and vegetable gardening. She is currently at work on her first poetry collection.
