A workshop from Jane Munro. As a witness in an era of crisis, what do you feel yourself called to do? How do you write a political poem without being didactic? What learning and teaching is it possible to do with a poem? How can poetry act as a change agent? What could you use as a meaningful structure for a poem on climate change (or any other huge topic)? What if you just don’t know enough? How on earth can you write poetry now?

Bring your own questions. This will be a workshop in which you can explore your relationship with your writing and your relationship with Earth. Come prepared to draft new poems.

Space is limited to 16 participants.

Presented in partnership with The Canadian Authors Association.
