wellspring of imagination
Wellspring of Imagination is an extensive poetry program for high school students. It consists of an intensive three days with prominent poets, working on writing and presentation of poetry. The workshop culminates with  a recital for family, teachers and friends. The writing activities will be supplemented with hikes, music and presentations from visual artists.

Your generous donations are the sole support for this program.

"Wellspring of Imagination is a quite wonderful and unique program in which outstanding creative writing students are chosen from high schools across Ohio to come to the beautiful Hocking Hills and spend three days of immersion in the study of poetry followed by a year of personal mentorship with a distinguished poet.  I do not know of another program anywhere in the United States that approaches the concentrated texture, quality, and enthusiasm inherent in this gathering of young poets.  I endorse Wellspring of Imagination wholeheartedly and without qualification."

David Lee, former Poet Laureate of Utah
