A HOLE IN THE WORLD: Writing the Elegy
Ancient Greek playwright and poet Euripides wrote, in HERAKLES, “Come back! Even as a shadow, even as a dream.” Even as a poem? In recognition of Grief Awareness Week and the Jewish tradition of shiva, the seven-day mourning period following one’s burial, we will gather for an hour a day for seven consecutive days, to honor, through the reading and writing of elegies, all that we’ve lost and those we grieve for.

We will alchemize loss into bodies of language that reimagine the holy and the whole.

NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
