Dear 2020: Writing to explore the griefs and blessings of the pandemic
The pandemic changed so much—how we greet each other, how we meet each other, how we work, how we play, how we move. There were huge losses—loved ones, careers, homes. And there were, for each of us, thousands of smaller losses—celebrations, vacations, events, goals, connections with family and friends, social rituals. For two hours, we’ll read and discuss and write poems (or not poems) that help us to name our griefs, meet them and honor how they have shaped us. We’ll explore, too, the silver linings and small blessings, letting poetry help us meet this moment and all that brought us here. Led by poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer.
Two sections of the class are offered. Participants should choose one: Tuesday, August 24, 6-8 p.m. or Wednesday, August 25, 10 a.m. – noon.
