Poetry: Caring for Self and Community with Cathleen Cohen — Friday, May 13, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET

During these pandemic years, many of us have had a steady diet of worry and isolation amid a concern for ourselves and loved ones, for safety and justice in the world. Deeply observing our daily moments and listening within can give rise to moving and authentic poetry. Together we will experiment in this workshop with writing activities that can help sustain us and strengthen connections. By noting the sacred in daily moments, we can move to write about hopes and concerns for the world. We will build community in a safe environment.


Please join us in this workshop, whether you have a regular writing practice or never wrote a poem before! We will find inspiration in reading others’ poetry and writing our own.
