Firehouse Cultural Center, 101 1st Ave NE, Ruskin FL

 

The Dog Days Poetry Workshop will allow participants to craft and respond to poems that “beat the heat.” Through the use of intensely frigid imagery, writers will get a short respite from August in Florida. Led by Poet John Davis Jr. This workshop is for teens and adults.

Davis is a seventh-generation Floridian whose poetry has been published in dozens of literary venues internationally. His poems have been repeatedly nominated for the Pushcart Prize and other laurels, and his books, Middle Class American Proverb (Negative Capability Press, 2014) and Hard Inheritance (Five Oaks Press, 2016) have also been critically acclaimed. He teaches English, Literature, and Creative Writing for colleges in the Tampa Bay Area, and resides in Riverview.
