In this poetry workshop, we will look at the various ways in which poets have written directly and/or imaginatively about trauma and its aftermath. Through various exercises, and in a small intimate setting, participants will learn and practice various techniques for expression and reclamation of the unspeakable through poetry. *phrase borrowed from title of Audre Lorde essay “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”
