Workshop With Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg

Finding Refuge and Companionship in Poetry

In a time of pandemic and pandemonium, come home to the poem and the refuge -- the brave and open place -- we create together to unearth and share our truths and visions.

We'll explore how reading, writing, speaking, and listening to poetry can bring us a greater sense of community while also helping us hear what we have to say to ourselves and the world. Poetry can also, even and especially in times of great uncertainty and danger, help us better understand what we carry and how to cultivate a little more resilience and freedom along the way.

This workshop includes an ample handout of writing prompts (including poems of our time and parallel times) you can do on your own or with others.
