Our theme for this growing winter is Patterns. Snow, thoughts, the way you move in the morning, and the way your houseplants lean, winter slanting light and, your cat as she pads through the room looking for the patch of light. See what organizing principle you find in voices, your world, the poems. And let’s speak of patterns in art and nature. We won’t stray from our bodies–We’ll continue our focus on poems by women and African American authors.
You’ll receive private handwritten individual feedback about your weekly poems mailed to you from Katharine.
Writing poems is a way to sort out your moving days. Writing allows you to access personal rhythms, images, your voice and be touched by the poem itself. In return, the poem influences your mornings, afternoons, nights.
In this writing group each week you’ll receive prompts and write. You’ll share last week’s writing (or current project). You’ll read poets who write in different forms, leaning toward women writers, poets of color, and poets who stir your heart.
This poetry writing workshop is a gentle way to celebrate and share writing. The group can serve as sanctuary in these, our times.
