Lyric Poetry: The Poetry of Healing
The poetic voice is a wise and a wily one. It comes through us and to us From the universe, the world around us, and the ineffable moments of our life, both good and bad. Poems lament in dark times and sing in joyful ones. It is our duty as poets to catch the poetry when it drops and deliver it on the page, making meaning out of our lives, stitching together moments and weaving them into art.
In this 4-week workshop, we will study lyric poems throughout history and we will create poems of our own the speak to the present moment. Together we will write, present and workshop poems that cherish our triumphs and soothe our sorrows. Especially in these dark times coming in and out of lockdowns, and the coronavirus, where we are doing battle on multiple fronts, this workshop will hold open the creative space for you to say the words that you need to and take heart and solace in the words of your classmates, striking a chord of the collective voices of the moment.SIGN UP
