Dispatches from Quarantine: Pandemic Poetry Edition
“How has the Coronavirus Pandemic and its surrounding cultural turbulence affected a generation of creative writers and the poetry of our culture and how will it continue to affect storytelling and poetry in the shared reality of our culture for the ages to come?”
That’s the question we are asking local authors to answer in this project developed by SF Creative Writing Institute.
Listen to the poets share work and ideas on how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected poetry, in this intimate reading and dialogue with San Francisco Poet Laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin and special guests.
This project is presented by the San Francisco Creative Writing Institute with support from the California Arts Council. It started as a blog, and then became a reading series.
Also join us May 1st, 2023 Online at for a Dispatches from Quarantine Poetry workshop hosted by Tongo Eisen Martin that helps writers examine the same themes in their own poetry.
