Another successful UTSPS Workshop

Twenty-five poets from as far away as Lehi, Utah and Mesquite, Nevada enjoyed the UTSPS Workshop by Danielle Dubrasky of Southern Utah University on Sat Jan 23 in St. George Utah. It was a delightful day exploring "Metaphors and Symbolic Landscapes" that helped those poets attending expand their poetic expressions. A luncheon followed for those interested in attending at George's restaurant in downtown St. George.

Markay Brown of Redrock Writers was in charge of this successful fun workshop.
We had 25 in attendance who were excited to learn some new poetic techniques.
Intently listening then trying out their skills in creating a poem from landscape art.
This interesting artwork was a challenge with its symbolic elements as a stimulus
Danielle read some of her own poetry to finish off our session.
Lunch at George's and good conversations was a perfect ending to our workshop.

  1. It was a great workshop. Talk about a good teacher, Danielle is one. I will be pondering, trying to decide if my direct language does, indeed, lead me to a metaphor.
