We spend so much of our adult lives working, yet we don’t often look to our jobs for poetic content. Why? In this generative workshop, we will reconsider our jobs, responsibilities, and volunteer work through a poetic lens. For inspiration, we’ll read and discuss poetry by writers such as Taneum Bambrick, Tiana Clark, Jon Tribble, and more. We’ll take time to do some writing and share our fresh starts. You’ll leave with first drafts of new poems as well as prompts to carry you into more writing beyond our time together. (Credit: class titled after Joyce Sutphen’s poem of the same name.)
