This Divided Country: Reconciling the Unresolved, Poetry Workshop with Joan Kwon Glass (via Zoom)

What remains unresolved in your life and in your writing? Using anchor poems about war and internal conflict, we will write about what troubles and unsettles us, developing our own unique voices along the way. In this generative workshop, we will explore the ways in which poetry can provide a battleground for working out the ancient battles inside ourselves, in our ancestries and in our relationships. This workshop will incorporate guided visualization exercises and some  discussion of how images and language can help to guide us to reconcile with our demons. Readings will include Anne Sexton, Hanif Abdurraqib, Eugenia Leigh, Suji Kwok Kim, Noor Hindi, C.T Salazar, Torrin A. Greathouse and others.

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.
