Poetry of Witness looks at the realities and identifies them. By looking outward, connections are made between the self and the world. In this workshop, we’ll examine the new realities many of us have been sharing—sheltering-in-place and social distancing. We’ll re-interpret place and discuss how our relationships to those places have altered during the quarantine. We’ll craft new work through the lens of witness.
Register at 20% off thru June 4th!
