Poems for Our Time: Remembering Childhood

Tuesday January 23 at 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Interested in cultivating your inner poet? Join us for Poems for Our Time where we’ll slow down, explore contemporary poetry, and connect with our creativity. Hosted by writer, workshop facilitator, and meditation teacher, Grace Bialecki.

Poetry is a place of solace, a place of mystery, a place where we can delve deeper into live’s questions and return with unexpected answers. In our scattered world, reading poetry together is a way of connecting with our shared humanity. It’s a way of slowing the pace of our lives, so we can pay attention to new words and ideas.


We’ll start continue this series by reading “The Field Trip” by Ellen Voigt and discussing the dynamics of childhood and how to capture it on the page. Our writing exercise will revolve around these ideas and how to put words to this time that is layered with emotions and changes as we look back at it.

By exploring contemporary American poetry together, we’ll come away with an understanding of our poetic zeitgeist, as well as tools for bringing poetry into our daily lives. Hosted by writer, workshop facilitator, and meditation teacher, Grace Bialecki. For more of her work, visit her website or find her on Twitter and TikTok.
