Welcome to the Downtown Dover Poetry Weekend Blog
We’re working on rescheduling all of our events that were postponed due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates!
RESCHEDULE ALERT: EKPHRASTIC POETRY WORKSHOP WILL NOW BE ONLINE.
Get ready for a FREE generative poetry workshop with award winning poets Jane Satterfield & Ned Balbo. Seating is limited. Register below. Visit the eventbrite page for poet bios & more.
Workshop Description: Across the centuries, poets have looked to other art forms for inspiration. In this workshop, participants will look at poems inspired by paintings and other visual arts, as well as music and film. What new doors open when you engage with another artist’s work? We’ll zoom in on the structures and strategies you can use and try out prompts that provide a path to new poems of your own.
This program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as a grant from the Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
