Shara McCallum’s No Ruined Stone and Tamiko Beyer’s Last Days are two collections that ask different questions of the past and the present. From tanku to haibun, from epistolary to prose, we will focus on selected poems from these collections and write poems that interrogate the past, the present, and question the future. What does blending these forms mean and how can they help us discover the elasticity of poetry to look backward, be present, and look forward at the same time? Have old letters, photos, photobooks, newspaper clippings on hand and let’s write to the past and at the same time, find a way to move forward by creating new work.

These two Alice James Books poets will be featured as part of the upcoming O.B. Hardison Poetry Series in 2021-2022.

Three Tuesdays: August 17, 24, 31 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
