Dear 2020: Writing to explore losses and blessings of the
The pandemic changed so much—how we greet each other, how we
meet each other, how we work, how we play, how we move. There were huge
losses—loved ones, careers, homes. And there were, for each of us, thousands of
smaller losses—celebrations, vacations, events, goals, connections with family
and friends, social rituals. For two hours, we’ll read and discuss and write
poems (or not poems) that help us to name our griefs, meet them and honor how
they have shaped us. We’ll explore, too, the silver linings and small
blessings, letting poetry help us meet this moment and all that brought us
here. Led by poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer.
