“Grief Scatters”: The Poetics of Loss Without Elegy
“Grief is difficult to explain, to share, and to shake off the shoulders like the heavy blanket it can be. Poets have long sought to verbalize grief: to celebrate what’s been lost as well as to mourn through both elegy and ode,” writes Stacey Balkun. This workshop will celebrate and mourn the time we find ourselves living through.
