In these extraordinary times, many have turned to food for comfort, whether through cooking and baking new recipes or appreciating familiar meals that have been taken for granted. Become inspired with other poets in an encouraging and lively workshop that uses food as a recipe for inspiration.

In this poetry intensive, Sarah Stern will provide writing exercises that focus on food in its broadest definition to stir up the creation of new poems. Participants will read and discuss selected contemporary poems, some of which use food as metaphor and more. Participants will then receive prompts and have time to write, share, and discuss their own work.

This workshop is meant for those looking for a supportive community of writers who wish to bring their writing to the next level. Beginning, emerging, and seasoned poets are encouraged to attend.

Sarah Stern is the author of We Have Been Lucky in the Midst of Misfortune, But Today Is Different, and Another Word for Love. She is a recipient of a 2019 and 2018 Pushcart Prize nomination and a five-time winner of the Bronx Council on the Arts BRIO Poetry Award. You can see more of her work at https://sarahstern.me/
