Facilitated by Kevin Rabas, Poet Laureate of Kansas 

Learn how to capture your listener’s attention by using vivid, compelling details. Hone your skills with imagery and description so you can tell captivating stories. Stories particularly about community, conflict, and transformation will be explored. We will study modern and contemporary poets, writers, and storytellers, including James Wright, Yusef Komunyakaa, Aimee Nezhuku-matathil, Aimee Bender, and Donald Barthelme, and spend time sharpening our own skills.
