The 2023 Utah Poetry Festival will feature readings from Utah poets, and craft panels on poetry and poetics.

In this panel, organizers will discuss the ways that prose and poetry borrow each other's tools, swap crayons, trade outfits: prose can be musical, metrical even, and poetry can have plot and characters. But when does one become the other? Where does the prose poem fit, or the novel-in-verse? Jean-Paul Sartre claimed that "Poetry creates the myth, the prose writer draws its portrait." If the line between the genres is fluid, why attempt to draw a line at all? Come and find out! Panelists Lance Larsen, Sunni Wilkinson, and Jason Olsen, moderated by Michael Lavers.
