Anxiety into Art—A One-Day Poetry Workshop

December 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+5

In uncertain times, how have poets transformed their anxieties into art? Join Gemini Ink’s Executive Director for this generative class and explore how poets have created new spaces from which to witness the world, digest and reconsider their fears, and cultivate new sources of resilience. We will study a selection of 20th century and contemporary poets as they take on their worries. Participants will be encouraged to draft new works, and constructive feedback will be provided. We may not solve the world’s problems in a day, but we can discover writing techniques that embolden and refresh us as we continue to navigate unprecedented times.

Welcome to the world of Noir, where the streets are dark with something more than night. Join us for a literary joyride through Texas and the West, down Park Avenue, and into the frigid Nordic landscape, a journey where the desperate and duplicitous encounter corruption, betrayal, and death - and no one comes out unscathed. Explore four timeless hardboiled classics: Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest, which started it all; Laura, The Getaway, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

We’d also love to hear your work! An open mic follows our featured readers: poetry and prose welcome! Sign up to read one piece (or no more than 3 minutes). We can’t think of anything better to celebrate this year than the creative resilience and rich voices of our community.
