The hard poem is the poem that deals with difficult subjects and deeply personal material that may seem too challenging to unpack in a poem. It is often, if not always, the poem no one wants to write but can be an empowering tool in finding voice, agency and healing. In this generative workshop, we will examine exemplary work, hone in on process and explore writing about trauma and emotionally charged personal stories. This workshop is a 2 hour virtual experience with carved out time for breath work and breaks. Each participant will get a digital workbook to reference during the workshop and an email recap of slides and additional writing prompts following the workshop.
