“What is mother and what is mothering?” Kimiko Hahn writes in the foreword to the anthology She Holds a Cosmos. Countless poets have explored these questions, with varying responses. Over the course of three weeks, you are invited to unpack your own answers to these questions with local poet and new mother, Daria-Ann Martineau. With over a decade’s experience writing poetry and leading workshops, Martineau will help mothers tap into their creative energy, process their new reality, and do something for themselves.

Using this collection (and other works) as a guide, poets will gain help generating ideas, creating tension in the work, and developing their unique tone and style. We will examine the moments, actions, and emotions that define the states of mothermood, and what they mean to the humans we were, are, and will be. Three Saturdays: Sept. 18, 25, Oct 2 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET
