Poems of Affirmation and Praise [Danusha Laméris]
All Levels | How do we, in times of loss, praise what’s left? In this workshop, we’ll explore poems that do just that: affirm humanity in the face of challenge and darkness. We’ll learn how these poems tick and talk about how they can help us — and the world. And, most importantly, how to write our own. Consider this a fireside gathering of comfort and craft. We’ll read: Ilya Kaminsky, Lucille Clifton, Jane Hirshfield, W.S. Merwin, and more.
