Dunsborough Library

Betrayal, cancer, fires, bereavement, domestic violence, infertility, drought – poetry allows us to wrestle with meaning as we face suffering and loss. In this workshop, participants will use the act of writing poetry to process difficult emotions and situations. Participants will be invited to consider an instance of pain or loss in the context of the structures of belief that make up our frameworks for meaning.
Then we will practice using poetry’s superpowers – simile and metaphor – to explore ways of naming and wrestling with these difficult experiences and emotions.
