Why Poetry? - Discussion

Why do we go to poetry, and when we do, what does it do for us? Join Kayla Czaga and Kimmortal for a discussion on poetry and care. Folks attending are invited to bring a poem of someone else’s that has been meaningful to them. There will be time to share these poems and discuss the ways in which poetry can offer spaces of refuge, healing, and connection. This discussion will be facilitated by Ann-Bernice Thomas.

WRITING ANCESTORS — DISCUSSION

The stories we tell have long histories that reach back deep into family, culture, and place. How do we write when we carry the stories of our ancestors, and a responsibility to share them? What do stories offer future generations, and how can they create networks of kinship across time and space? Alex Leslie, Whess Harman, and Jane Shi will join in conversation for a discussion of writing across generations moderated by Sally Yue Lin.
