Workshop description: Using poetic verse, how might we write ourselves* into the future?

This title is an homage to the late poet June Jordan who said: “Poetry is the most personal language of experience It is how we name what happens to us. It is how we name ourselves. It is how we name our dreams so that others will join in our naming. It is how we name what terrified, and how we exorcise that terror. It is attitude and response. It is consistently individual.”

How might we use this time to dream together through words?
I offer instruction on three poetic forms: sonku, haiku, and haiju for participants to name their dreams through verse.
*There will be a special focus on the intersection of parenting introduced in this workshop.
