From Poetry Barn:
“When I say/I love my family/what I mean/is I worship/the battle,” Saida Agostini writes early in her stunning debut poetry collection let the dead in. What does it mean to be fierce in our own historical presence? To demand our right to exist in the family stories that shape our very reality?
This poetry workshop is an invitation to writers to explore the family stories that have not yet been told, and the futures waiting to be claimed. Through generative exercises, storytelling, and somatic practices, writers will walk away with new drafts of the family stories still waiting to be told.
Includes light lunch and a reserved seat at 7:30 PM reading & open mic
