In her poem, "Letter to My Sister," Philadelphia's former Poet Laureate Trapeta B. Mayson writes: "I have managed to poem all my pain; /tell me, /what do you do with yours?" Join grief coach and death midwife Naila Francis for an exploration of this question. Through poetry, writing prompts and the witnessing of each other's stories, we'll make space for our grief and what it needs from us. No writing or poetry experience necessary. The focus here isn't on craft but on using poems as a place to access our grief and then resting what's in our hearts on the page through guided writing prompts.
Fee: $32.00
