In this workshop, we’ll challenge our traditional ideas of bravery. We will write toward the dark places in ourselves, into what lurks at the edges of our awareness and frightens us. We will use our collective bravery to put the darkness on the page and then interrogate it with editorial curiosity. Participants will leave with the skeleton of one new courageous poem.
