Event: Wanted: Poetry of Prayer & Desire

Date: October 15, 2022
Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Where: Wishing Tree Books 1410 E 11th St.

Join Mika for an in-person generative writing workshop at Wishing Tree Books on Saturday, October 15, 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. (And then hang out after for a fun poetry reading at 4 p.m. with Mery Smith!)

We’ll look at writing from Sappho to Sharon Olds, John O’Donohue’s blessings, Mary Oliver’s poems of attention, and more, to write our own poems of desire and request. We’ll look at the overlap (and gaps) between writing about the body and writing about the spirit. We’ll have fun playing around with words.

This workshop costs $15. You need to pre-register by filling out this form, but you will pay on the day of the workshop at Wishing Tree Books. If you’d like to attend the workshop but $15 is a financial burden, just shoot me an email!
