About this workshop

How have poets engaged with their personal history, and rendered particular experiences through verse? How do trauma, testimony and longing find a voice through lyric and narrative? In this workshop, participants discover how poetry may offer a powerful means of healing, in excavating buried emotions and expressing them in crafted language. Indeed, the truth of experience may articulate itself through captivating image and sound. How does one also gain empathy through such art creation? The new poetic form, the anima methodi, will be introduced, with the search for contributions for an upcoming anthology. In looking to the lessons of the past, this workshop investigates how contemporary poets might at once celebrate the personal and voice the concerns of the present.
