Chaos and uncertainty can make us feel isolated and alone. Remaining grounded in gratitude and community can help, as can connecting through art and writing. In this generative writing workshop, participants will examine gratitude as active pursuits in both writing and life. We will study contemporary poems that effectively acknowledge, appreciate, or, resist the world around them. Each writer will leave with a draft of one poem and prompts to use for further writing.
