How can the writing and sharing of poems help us build community or invite a group to explore language, voice, and place? We will play with Haiku/Renga, Zuihitsu, Cento, and other forms, or make up a form. We’ll create something that we both leave in the writing space and take with us. We will think about the relationship between the individual and collaborative voice, how a quilt of words, syntax, and linguistics works. We’ll encounter surprises, generate ideas, and have fun.

Poet, essayist, and educator Kathy Engel has worked in many of the major social justice, peace, and human rights movements in the United States. She has co-founded numerous organizations, including MADRE (1983), an international women’s human rights group, which she directed for five years.

Her books include Ruth’s Skirts (IKON, 2007); The Kitchen, in collaboration with artist German Perez (Yaboa Press, 2011); and We Begin Here: Poems for Palestine and Lebanon (Interlink Books, 2007), co-edited with Kamal Boullata. The video work Whowillkneel4you? (2018) appears on The Root, and features a chorus of artists reading Engel’s poem, “To Kneel.”

Engel serves as Chair and Associate Arts Professor in NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Department of Art and Public Policy, and Master’s Program in Arts Politics. She currently is working on a memoir, Marvelous Dissonance, about her cultural work, activism, life, and poetry.
