Poetry Workshop: “The Personal and the Political”

October 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

 Sign up for this special poetry class, featuring Rick Barot, Auburn Witness Poetry Prize Judge for 2022 .


We’re living in politically tumultuous, grief-struck times, and poetry’s role as a catalyst for redress has never been more necessary. As we process each day’s onslaught of news, many of us struggle to reconcile our roles as artists, citizens, agents of resistance, conscience, and care.  In this class, we’ll look at poets whose works illustrate the ways we might pivot—whether messily or fluidly—between the personal and the political, the private and the historical. The poets we look at will include Ross Gay, Victoria Chang, Layli Long Soldier, and others.

*Registration required for this event. Only 16 spots available.*
