Free Poetry Workshop at James Island Town Hall

How do poets remain engaged in their craft without leaving everyday life behind? How can we write well, while meeting the challenges of parenthood, civic engagement, study, making a living, and publishing? We'll share strategies and write a poem to encourage ourselves to face our fears and pursue our goals.

Doctoral candidate Len Lawson is author of Chime (forthcoming) and Before the Night Wakes You (2017). He co-edited Hand in Hand: Poets Respond to Race, and holds open discussions on race and diversity. A Pushcart and Best of the Net nominee, and finalist for the Berfois, Yellow Chair Review Chapbook, and Mississippi Review prizes, he was named Jasper Magazine's 2016 Literary Artist of the Year.
