Poetry Workshop: Truth to Empathy with Poet Huascar Medina

January 23 @ 11:00 am

Saturday, January 23, 11:00am – This virtual event is FREE, registration is required.

T.S. Eliot once wrote: “Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.”  I believe in and practice radical truth and radical empathy. In this emotionally intense writing workshop you will be asked to investigate your authentic voice by speaking truth and listening. Led by poet Huascar Medina, we will be writing emotionally charged letters in this exercise that will inform us on how we are received by a reader. Please be prepared to write multiple times. Sharing is optional.

Huascar Medina, Poet Laureate of Kansas (2019-2021), is the Lit Editor for seveneightfive magazine, creator/host of Kansas is Lit on 785live.com, an Op-Ed writer for Kansas Reflector, and a new editor at South Broadway Press.  He’s published two collections of poetry Un Mango Grows in Kansas (2020) and How to Hang the Moon (2017). His words have appeared in The New York Times, Latino Book Review, and elsewhere.
This program is funded in part by grants from the City of Boulder’s Boulder Arts Commission and the Human Relations Commission.
