Event Details

“Writing Our Unusual(ly) Sacred Places: A Generative Poetry Workshop”  Wendell Berry famously says “There are no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places.” Butte is famously desecrated by its mining history, but is the line between sacred and desecrated so absolute? In this workshop, we’ll look at some classic writing about Butte as an unusual(ly) sacred place, and then turn to some generative exercises to create our own poems.

This workshop is open to all ages and skill levels.

Katy Shedlock is a poet of place, spirituality, and subverting the stories we thought we knew.  Her work has appeared in I Sing the Salmon Home: Poems from Washington State, Geez Magazine, Plainsongs, and The Inlander, as well as online on Earth & Altar, Bearings Online, and Amethyst Review.  She’s excited to spend her Dear Butte residency working on her thesis for her MFA in poetry at Eastern Washington University.
