Mark the shortest day, Midwinter Day: write.

From BERNADETTE MAYER, Midwinter Day,

“… a plain introduction to modes of love and reason / Then to end I guess with love, a method to this winter season / Now I’ve said this love it’s all I can remember / Of Midwinter Day the twenty-second of December.”

On the fortieth anniversary of Midwinter Day, Mayer's famous long poem written over the span of a day, HOA NGUYEN leads a 3-hour poetry workshop. Join this three hour guided romp and celebration of community for word-fire-making. Expect to get a lot of writing done.

Register now! Hoa's workshops fill quickly:
