Jacqueline Suskin celebrating EVERY DAY IS A POEM

EVERY DAY IS A POEM cover art Jacqueline Suskin author photo event details

 

How do we deal with the heaviness of everyday living? When we are surrounded by uncertainty,  distrust, and destruction, how do we sift through the chaos and enjoy being alive? 

In EVERY DAY IS A POEM, Jacqueline Suskin aims to answer these questions by using poetry as  a tool for finding clarity and feeling relief, interweaving her own work throughout. Suskin says,  “This is poetry: it’s an exchange of moments, an offering of answers, a place where others can join  in the lesson of wonder.” With provocative questions, writing practices, and mindset  exercises, this celebrated poet shows you how to focus your senses, cultivate curiosity, and create  your own document of the world’s beauty. Emphasizing that the personal is inextricable from the  creative, Suskin offers specific instructions on how to make a map of your past and engage with  your pain to write a healing poem. 

Poetry isn’t a magic cure-all that makes adversity vanish, but it does summon the wondrous and  sublime out of the shadows. Suskin seeks to remind us how incredible it is to be alive at all, even  when it hurts. Most importantly, she reveals that we all have the ability to create beauty and  meaning out of difficult and overwhelming times. Discover how poetry helps us understand  challenging emotions, navigate confusion, and see beauty in every moment in EVERY DAY IS A  POEM. Jacqueline will talk about her poetry and how it has helped her during this time. She will guide us toward our own poetry writing through her questions, writing practices and mindset exercises. We think this is the perfect time to express ourselves in a new way ... and we hope you will join us!
