All Levels | The news is abrasive because it’s incomplete. It’s the bitterness without the coffee, the salt without the pickle, the acid without the balsamic glaze aged ten years in oak barrels in Tuscany. It is the poet’s job to turn fact into food, loss into learning, and pain into song. In this workshop we will talk back to facts that leave us hungry by writing poems that nourish. This class has an hour lunch.
