We had such fun marking our 20th anniversary from November 10-15, 2016!
You can hear sections from our anniversary reading at Smith College on November 12 in the “Audio” tabs of some of the participating poets (see Catherine Anderson, Carol Edelstein, Faye George, Jenifer Browne Lawrence, Gail Martin, Lisa Allen Ortiz, Ida Stewart, Gail Thomas, Lynne Thompson, and Corrie Williamson for new recordings from our main event!).
Here’s a group poem that was written collaboratively by participants in the workshop Janet Aalfs gave on “Poetry and Curiosity”:
Toss something into the future besides fear
Fear or feast
Cracks of winter’s night
Singing up the slope
Love is possible when you simply begin
Borne aloft on the river of air
