Kwame Dawes, Keynote Speaker on Literary Citizenship
“We can train ourselves to respect our feelings, and to discipline (transpose) them into a language that matches those feelings so they can be shared.” (Audre Lorde, Poetry is Not a Luxury)
As COVID sweeps across the planet and through our lives, we continue to confront our vulnerabilities, both public and private. Hard truths about our nation are in sharp focus. How do we carve out purpose, chart a meaningful course, through troubling times that don’t seem to end? Taking care of ourselves and others is one answer, and it can take many forms.
