POETRY IN THE PARK
This enriching annual program is made possible by a partnership between Utah State Poetry Society, the Zion National Park Forever Project, and the hard work of dedicated volunteers and supporters. Poetry in the Park welds nature and poetry beautifully in its setting at the Nature Center in Zion National Park. This year the event will feature renowned poet, Lola Haskins. The experience will also include a guided nature hike, silent poetry writing time, and time to share the very poetry participants wrote that day and receive feedback on it. Tuition for the event is $50 for adults and $20 for students accompanied by their teachers. Masks are required at the indoor presentation
Lola Haskins is a huge fan of Utah and Utah poets. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, London Review of Books, Georgia Review, and elsewhere. Among her awards are the Iowa Poetry Prize, two Florida book prizes, two NEAs, and the Emily Dickinson Award from the PSA. She teaches for Rainier Writer’s Workshop, a low-residency MFA based in Tacoma, WA. Her most recent book (of fifteen) is Asylum (2018), which was featured in the New York Times.
