Words for These Times--a poetry workshop
Please note, this event has expired.
Ukiah Poet Laureate Roberta Werdinger hosts this community workshop featuring poetry that responds to war, terror, climate change, and other crises.
For centuries, human beings everywhere have turned to poetry to commemorate hard times, shine light where little is available, and witness their and others’ suffering. Great poems have been written in the midst of, or in response to, fire, flood, war, and other scenarios that threaten the social and natural order we depend on.
In this workshop, we will start with reading poems from writers past and present who have responded to hard times, including the unprecedented threat of climate change.View more
