Keep Passing the Open Windows: Writing Poems of Survival & Hope with Joan Kwon Glass via Zoom

In this generative writing workshop, we will read and write poems that explore survival and hope. What does it mean to have hope in spite of our troubles? How can we channel light in our writing, even as we navigate that which unsettles us?  In this workshop, we will read poems by Chen Chen, Ocean Vuoung, Ross Gay, Nicole Hefner Callihan, Franny Choi and many others, and try our hand at writing our own poems of survival and hope.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and capped at 15. Link will be sent to email you use to register at the time of registration and again the day before the class. Please make sure to read our course policies page regarding workshop conduct and logistics before registering for any class at HVWC.
