This workshop will examine all aspects of when and whether a poem is “telling the truth.” What is “truth” in a poem? Is it sticking to the story of what happened? An emotional truth? A spiritual truth? All of the above? None of the above? How do we know when our poems are telling the truth?
Tuesday July 20, 6:00 to 9:00 PM EST, on Zoom. Limited to 15 participants.
