Witness: A Poetry Writing and Performance Workshop with Rosamond S. King

Oct 16, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Six Wednesdays, October 16–December 4
(skipping November 13 & 27)


What does it mean to witness through poetry? We will practice witnessing others’ lives, our own, and the city around us, reading poets from Edna St. Vincent Millay to Jayne Cortez. Performance exercises will explore modulation, breath, pacing, and rhythm, while writing exercises will alternate between diving into ourselves and witnessing the world.


Class Dates:
Wednesday, October 16, 6–8:30pm
Wednesday, October 23, 6–8:30pm
Wednesday, October 30, 6–8:30pm
