About the Event

April, 2020 — In a moment where the country is in a rush to “get back to normal,” we’re hoping to create a meditative moment, to bring together poets and poetry lovers, and to consider what patience might have to do with poetry and with the present moment. We will endeavor to be patient with one another and with ourselves, to consider the nature of our impatiences, the pleasures and pitfalls of urgency. Patience is necessary for reading and writing poetry, and patience is a poetic act, a paradox of doing and not doing. Join us as we practice this rare art of patience together.
