NEW: Matthew Dickman's Open Window Poetry Workshop: A Craft Inquiry Into Grief and Trauma | May 13 - June 10 FULL-- WAIT LIST ONLY

"First the blow, hours afterwards the bruise." ~ Walter de la Mare

Poetry holds a unique place at the table of Grief & Trauma: People who normally never read poetry turn to it in times of difficulty and despair. Why is that? How does poetry rebuild the language that Grief & Trauma tend to destroy? In this class we will be exploring these questions and more as we look at examples of different kinds of Grief & Trauma through the work of some of my favorite poets. After exploring each week we will take what we have discussed, read, and learned and apply it to our own work. This is not your normal workshop but a poetic inquiry, a wondering, an exploration. | Maximum 12 students
