POEMS FOR A BETTER NATION
with Kim Stafford
FRIDAY, 9-11:30
NOV. 16 (1 Session)
FREE

What is a poet’s work in these strange times? How can words most matter for the good of our nation and this Earth? As Canadian poet Dennis Lee once said, in words engraved on the outer wall of the Scottish parliament, we need to “Work as if in the early days of a better nation.” In this workshop, we will read and write poems that seed the future with truth and challenge, question and witness, from outright political poems to more oblique contributions to a better nation—lullabies, songs of a patriot (or matriot loyal to home ground), manifestos, consolations, & blessings. Come begin a book of lyric testimony.
