    This sounds very interesting. A course designed around this would be a good addition at ASU. Too bad I won’t be in the Tucson area.

    I wish I lived closer to Tucson. This workshop is about exactly the kind of poetry I’d love to write.

    I find this concept very interesting. I think it would be very interesting to pay closer attention to the techniques writers (in fiction and poetry) employ to illustrate such topics as genocide and racism in a way that is not didactic, but rather, tells a story while also communicating a grander theme.

      I agree with you, there is a fine line when “witnessing”. You want the lesson to be the event itself, not the author’s opinion. This workshop looks very interesting.

    This workshop looks like an invaluable experience. I would be interested in hearing what participants think of it since I won’t be able to make it there myself.

    I’d love to see some of the poetry produced at this workshop. There certainly is a lot to “bear witness” on in today’s world.
