Spirit in the Dark: A Day-Long Poetry Workshop

Outrage, remembrance, prayer, manifesto. How do poets marry the lyrical and social engagement? Inner life with history? The personal and the political? We'll consider the poetry of contemporary poets from the U.S. and around the world and explore ways our imaginations might invite something greater than ourselves into our own poetry.

I’ll provide writing prompts to help you on your way and feedback on your drafts. I'll also send you a packet of poems to read before we meet. You’ll finish the day with three drafts of new poems. The class is open to all lovers of poetry — beginners and experienced writers alike. I'll hope you'll join us. Please come with a notebook or laptop and an open mind.

Kathryn Hunt’s poetry has appeared in the Sun, Radar, Orion, Missouri Review, Carolina Quarterly, Frontier Poetry, Writer’s Almanac, and Narrative. Her first collection of poems, Long Way Through Ruin, was published by Blue Begonia Press. The Gathering In, her second collection, will be published by Lost Horse Press in 2021. She is the recipient of residencies and awards from Ucross, Hedgebrook, Artists Trust, and Joya AIR (Spain). She recently completed a memoir, Why I Grieve I Do Not Know. She’s worked as a waitress, shipscaler, short-order cook, bookseller, printer, food bank coordinator, filmmaker, and freelance writer. kathrynhunt.net

Oh traveler, what if the far river had not been created?
Where then would you dream of going?
