People Writing Poems
4 Week Sessions
with Katharine Kaufman
Monday evenings, 6-8:30
June 11, 18, 25, July 2, 2018
Writing poems allows us access into intimate worlds. The practice allows us to touch the page, hear rhythms of words, share images, and be moved by this–the poem itself. Each week we will write and share from last week’s writing (or current project). We’ll read poets who write in different forms, leaning toward women writers, poets of color and poets who spark our dig for insight. This group is a way to celebrate words, thoughts, experiences, and the internal rhythm of our days. The group can serve as sanctuary in these, our times.
