In the World: Writing Parenthood Beyond the Domestic

As the poetry of parenthood has proliferated, writers have taken the topic well outside the domestic sphere. Poets including Douglas Kearney, Craig Morgan Teicher, Angela Narciso Torres, and Khadijah Queen have used their role as parent as a lens through which to view nature, racism, romance, health, and illness—subjects that take on new complexity when one is thinking not just of oneself. In this generative seminar, writers will use their caretaking roles as a way to raise the stakes of a poem. Caretakers of all kinds are welcome; you need not identify as a parent.
