Sarah Stern


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

Sarah Stern will lead a poetry intensive and provide writing exercises that will focus on food in its broadest definition to stir up 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 specific time to write, share and discuss their own work.

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. She is on the faculty of New York Writers Workshop.
