Don’t Blink: Nightmare Poetics [Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello]

All Levels | “Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.” —Mary Oliver

Why do we return again and again to haunting and violence, war and vengeance, terror and torment? In this generative workshop, we will examine poems by Ai, Jericho Brown, Natalie Diaz, Kim Hyesoon, and Galway Kinnell, with a dash of Doctor Who as a way to write into the darkness together, exorcise some demons, and reemerge still intact, without looking away even if we flinch.
