How do our imaginations meet the moment we’re living through with compassion and truth? How do we marry the quotidian with history? The personal with the political? In this workshop, we'll consider these questions through the work of contemporary poets, among them Joy Harjo, Adrienne Rich, Cornelius Eady, and Carolyn Forché, and consider ways we might allow and meld our imaginations and the harms evident in the greater body-politic. Participants will bring two unfinished poems (drafts) that you’d like to revise during the workshop and receive feedback on your work from the instructor. You’ll go home with new drafts to refine, publish, and share with friends; a deeper understanding of the tradition of poetry of witness; and a list of poetry books for further reading.

This workshop is open to all lovers of poetry, and writers of all levels. Please come to class with a notebook or laptop and an open mind.
