Of poetry’s many gifts is its ability to help us process our deepest emotions, bringing us toward revelation and healing. When practiced with this level of awareness and intention, the writing of a poem is more than the creation of a work of art; it becomes a sacred rite. Irene will be reading from Beneath the Bamboo Sky and discussing her writing strategies/process, as well as suggesting writing prompts and allowing time for participants to write.
Beneath the Bamboo Sky “really is a kind of model for using mixed forms to articulate the ineffable.”
~ Joseph Bathanti, former NC Poet Laureate
