The ordinary darkness of November, December is different this year. We are uneasy, missing people, as well as simply missing the sun. How are you going to bring the light in? In this session, Ronna Bloom will read poems that might speak to this moment and its needs, and will lead one or two writing exercises. Everyone is welcome to join this Writers’ Co-op Social, to hold a candle of poetry in the dark.
