Writing to Cancel the Apocalypse (with Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre)

Poems aren’t going to save the world. But poets can have meaningful roles to play in that work, and our poetry can be part of that. On one level, this will be a workshop on “political poetry.” But we’ll also explore what that term even means, especially today. What are the various functions of writing that grapples with social justice issues, policy, or activism?

What makes that kind of writing effective, both in the sense of being engaging and powerful as poetry, and in the sense of meaningfully supporting movement work? This will be a space for poets to sharpen their craft, but also for other kinds of communicators (organizers, communication directors, critical educators, content creators, workshop facilitators, and beyond) to really dig into the power that poetry has to both tell our stories, and be a visionary force to help shape the stories yet to come.
