Workshop description.

Sticks & Stones: Turning Grief Into Verse

The saying "sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" is a phrase that has been used for countless years to illustrate the idea that words don't hurt. However,  we all know that words have a large impact. The key is how we use them, particularly when it comes to grief and loss.

This workshop will explore how poetry can transform our relationship with grief by using elegies, language and imagery to relinquish pain, give power and honor our losses.
