Community Care for Poets and Humans Who Care (Approx. 3 hours)

This workshop explores community care and accountability, and is heavily discussion based. It explores our own care routines, how we care for each other, and the impact that this care can have on us as poets and as humans. It is meant to run as a personal and community inventory tracking the flow of emotional energy, particularly looking at where we invest energy and how we engage with our respective communities, audiences, and art forms.

We also examine the practice of care, what supporting and being supported looks like tangibly, and how to better access this in our interpersonal and broader lives.

The workshop runs like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book, in that yes comes with a variety of conversations, activities, and resources, in order to better meet the desires of those in the room. The structure is informal, but the overall experience is guided and intentional.

Other Workshops
