The Witness of Poetry: Emotions, Trauma and Healing

WORKSHOP, LITERARY ARTS

 

How have poets engaged with their personal histories and rendered particular experiences through verse? How do trauma, testimony and longing find a voice through lyric and narrative? How does one also gain empathy through such art creation? In this workshop, poets Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé and Eric Tinsay Valles will help participants discover how poetry may offer a powerful means of healing as they excavate buried emotions and express them in crafted language – and how the truth of one’s experience may articulate itself through captivating image and sound. In looking to the lessons of the past, this workshop investigates how contemporary poets might celebrate the personal and voice the concerns of the present.

This workshop will help participants discover how poetry may offer a powerful means of healing as they excavate buried emotions and express them in crafted language – and how the truth of one’s experience may articulate itself through captivating image and sound.
