Brief description: In this workshop we will look at the craft of the elegy. How do we take pain and memory and turn it into poetry? Whether lamenting someone or the state of the world, we will look at the place of elegies in today's time by examining contemporary poets' work. There will also be time for writing.

Brief description: This 4-week series has been designed for and offered to those who feel overwhelmed by life's challenges or those who feel too stuck to make a plan for something more. Each week, participants will be given a poem and prompts that will gently guide them in journaling and poetry writing exercises (and optional "supporting exercises" for those who want to go deeper into the work). By using creativity of writing, participants will begin to identify what weight needs to be unpacked and how, and begin to re-pack what is most important and meaningful to them.
