Moving Mountains: Writing Epistolary Poems to Self, Others & the World with Joan Kwon Glass




The epistolary poem can be a unique & effective vessel to freedom: freedom to write what we have feared to say, freedom to address the mountains inside and outside of ourselves. Joan Kwon Glass, author of NIGHT SWIM, will share epistolary poems by poets such as Lucille Clifton, Victoria Chang, Danez Smith, D.H. Lawrence & more, and lead students in generating their own using original writing prompts.
