Upcoming classes: Poetry
FRIDAY, APRIL 30 | We have been in the churn of uncertainty and chaos for a year now. How do we continue to feel grounded while writing in this time? How can gratitude, for instance, pivot and nourish our poems, however confined we find ourselves within our physical spaces? In this generative workshop, we’ll read relevant works by Ross Gay and Aracelis Girmay, among others, and scribe the big and small blessings we miss to see around us. We will create and share poems that dive deep into thankfulness. There will be prompts, share time, and by the end folks will have written new drafts they can later return to.
This class will meet on Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for Zoom details.
