Poet and naturalist Diane Ackerman wrote, “the spirit of deep play is spontaneity, discovery, and being open to new challenges.” Who knows this better than the poet? Sawyer plans a playful writing workshop to “exercise several ‘poetic muscles,’ and explore ways to nurture more joy and freedom in our creative work.”
Joy Sawyer’s poetry appears in Books & Culture, Christianity & Literature, LIGHT Quarterly, Lilliput Review, New York Quarterly, Ruminate, St. Petersburg Review, The Bacon Review, Volta, and others. Her book of poems is Tongues of Men and Angels (White Violet Press, 2016).
Joy received her MA from New York University, where she won the Herbert Rubin Award for Outstanding Creative Writing. She teaches at Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver.
