On Saturday, February 24 from 10 am to 1 pm, Mr. Ó Tuama will present a workshop: Conflict and Poetry, A Conversation, at The Raimond Cultural Center – Reservations Required, $20 (lite lunch included).

Much poetry thrives from conflict: conflict between what you can say, and what you feel you can’t; what is possible to do in language and what feels impossible. Some poems represent conflict directly, some poems cause conflict, and still others speak from an insider point of view.
In this workshop, we will explore poems that speak to conflict: looking at the relationship between poetry and opinion; considering justice, injustice, statement, power, power imbalance, resolution and demand.
We will explore poems, form, and respond to some prompts.  Please come prepared to be in a room with people who may approach topics differently to you.
