The focus is to provide participants with a diverse range of approaches and tools for creating poems.
Award-winning poet and author, Marlanda Dekine-Sapient Soul, of Plantersville, SC, will lead the series and bring in a selection of poems by accomplished and emerging SC poets and then guide participants through key elements of these works. She will then discuss ways participants can incorporate these techniques into their own writing.

Previously, Marlanda studied in Paris with NYU's Low-Residency MFA program. Currently, she is an FMA candidate at Converse College, and a 2019 Fresh Voice of the Year, awarded by SC Humanities.
