Writing can be a lonely act, and it often seems no one's listening. In these sessions, we will explore the letter poem and its opportunities for connection, social commentary or critique, catharsis, and discovery. By discussing a range of poets—Matthew Olzmann to Danez Smith, Emily Dickinson to June Jordan, and Hugo himself—we will develop strategies for navigating the triangle of poet, addressee, and reader. Each week we'll craft our own pieces—mailing is optional!
