POETRIO: Laura will be reading with two other regional poets.

Connecting to the Bible

"Laura is able to seamlessly weave scripture with situations relative to today's children so that the children see the correlation between the two. With each play our students are not only immersed into the biblical essence of the lesson, but also experience through acting how scripture touches them in today's world."

Touching the Hearts

"I have seen younger children roll with laughter as they portrayed favorite Old Testament characters, and I have seen older ones moved to tears as they begin to grasp the reality of Jesus' sacrifice through "The Gift is Given." Laura clearly writes with children in mind, but her unique sense of humor transcends generations and her deep spirituality touches the hearts of children and adults alike."

Poet and Playwrite Laura Still

Laura StillLaura Still's Guardians was released this past fall by Celtic Cat Publishing. A work decidedly personal and spiritual in tone, it has proved inspiring, garnering high praise from noted local writers. Marianne Worthington: "Laura Still's debut collection of poems shimmers like a painting; her word canvas is color-driven with themes of light and shadow that contour a sense of wonder and mystery." Marilyn Kallet: "Generous, accessible, and unaffected, these poems are like little phoenixes .... Each one of them celebrates the spirit's victory—art's victory—over loss and sorrow. Each object, moment, and event is wrapped tenderly in the lyrical weave of redemptive song." Don Williams: "This is a beautiful gathering of poems. They lift the heart and eyes to numinous windows lit with voice, spirit, grace."

While working on Guardians, Laura Still embarked upon Acts of the Apostles, which has just been published by Stony River Media. The book features 25 one-act plays for children, all written by Still and based on Bible stories and themes. Complementing this assemblage are various instructional offerings for those who lead theatrical groups for young people. These informative elements encompass the setting up of a drama room, the making of costumes, props and stage sets, and an array of teaching tips.

Laura Still's involvement with children and the theater has been both passionate and longstanding. A mother of two, Still has taught Sunday school for 18 years and she has been a drama workshop leader for the Church Street United Methodist Church the past eight years. Apart from her church, Still has served as a stage manager for the Tennessee Stage Company.

Still's creativity and commitment to the arts have been expressed in a rich and varied manner, extending well beyond the footlights. She is a member of the Knoxville Writers' Guild, having served as its treasurer, a workshop instructor, and a judge of its Young Writers' Poetry Prize. Her poems have been published in numerous Guild anthologies; she has been a frequent contributor to the literary journal New Millennium Writings; and her first feature article, "An Angel Above Us," appeared in the 2009 holiday issue of Cityview magazine.
