Poetry in & of Crisis [Chen Chen]

All Levels | “Who would / be left alive to care?” asks Nikky Finney at the end of “Left,” a poem about the lack of care toward black lives in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. In the context of the pandemic — or previous crises, large and “small” — what kind of care can we, as writers, as the living, offer? In this workshop, we’ll read poems that explore/enact care in a multitude of ways as well as poems that address what happens in the lack. In between reading, we’ll write our own poems (or lines) toward aliveness and yes, being here to care.
