Finding Refuge and Companionship in Poetry: In a time of pandemic and pandemonium, come home to the poem and the refuge — the brave and open place — we create together to unearth and share our truths and visions. We’ll explore how reading, writing, speaking, and listening to poetry can bring us a greater sense of community while also helping us hear what we have to say to ourselves and the world. Poetry can also, even and especially in times of great uncertainty and danger, help us better understand what we carry and how to cultivate a little more resilience and freedom along the way. This workshop includes an ample handout of writing prompts (including poems of our time and parallel times) you can do on your own or with others.

Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Ph.D., Kansas Poet Laureate Emerita is the author of 24 books, including How Time Moves: New & Selected Poems; Miriam’s Well, a novel; Needle in the Bone, a non-fiction
book on the Holocaust; The Sky Begins At Your Feet, a memoir on cancer and community. Founder of Transformative Language Arts, Mirriam-Goldberg leads writing workshops widely, coaches people on
writing and right livelihood and consults with businesses and organizations on creativity.
