“Shelter-in-Place: Writing Where We Are”

Since the onset of the pandemic, many of us have been struggling with with anxiety and fear. In more recent weeks, many of us have been struggling with rage and hope as social justice and violence sweep across America. In this poetry workshop, we will take the term “Shelter-In-Place” as a directive to take Solace in Place, investigating how to more deeply see the places we live and how we live in them. Through readings, discussions, and in-class prompts related to the idea of Place, we will engage newly with what is outside of our windows at present. What does it mean to be here, now, and what before this particular moment in time might we have overlooked? By engaging specifically with Place through poetry, this workshop is an opportunity to become re-centered during this time of uncertainty, and to deepen meaning in our day-to-day lives. The goal of this class is to engage with curiosity over fear and possibility over perfection, both on the page and off.

Space is limited to 15 participants, in order to foster a warm and safe space for connectivity and community. No writing experience is necessary, and this class is open to anyone ages 14 and up. Registration is open now!
