Memories can inspire–and expressing those memories in poetry can help us to remember, save, celebrate, and even heal. A free community poetry writing workshop entitled “Inspired” helps participants create a new poem as a response to a memory using writing prompts and exercises. Offered annually in participation with the Utah Humanities Book Festival by Rock Canyon Poets and Pioneer Book, this workshop will be presented in two sessions, followed by a reception and poetry reading. Participants will be encouraged to submit their poem to be included in a printed anthology and contributors will receive a free copy.
Pioneer Book, 450 West Center Provo, Utah 84601
