Poems are portals for exploring the reach of human potential. By writing, sharing and reading poetry, we inspire and instruct ourselves and each other about what can be possible in our lives and far beyond. In celebration of National Poetry Month, Sage Cohen––author of Writing the Life Poetic forthcoming from Writer’s Digest Books––will talk about how poetry can bring us into greater contact with ourselves, our community and our world. She will offer a range of exercises, information and tips designed to jump-start your poetry writing and reading practice.
Sage Cohen is the author of Writing the Life Poetic, a creative companion for poets forthcoming from Writer’s Digest Books, and the poetry collection Like the Heart, the World. Her poetry and essays appear in journals and anthologies including Cup of Comfort for Writers, Oregon Literary Review, Greater Good and VoiceCatcher. In 2006, she won first prize in the Ghost Road Press annual poetry contest. Sage holds an MA in creative writing from New York University where she was awarded a New York Times Foundation fellowship. Sage teaches Poetry for the People, an e-mail poetry class.
