Hi Writing Friends!

I’m honored to be leading a Breakout Session at the Breathe Writers Conference this fall! The session (and conference) will be virtual this year. Below is the summary for my session:

Writing from Exile: Finding Hope Amidst Hardship—Prasanta Verma

Poets through the years who experienced exile, imprisonment, or other hardship used their words to describe, inspire, encourage, and educate others about their circumstances, even at great personal risk. We will take a closer look at poets who wrote from places of hardship (such as Nazi camps, communist countries, etc), and learn from them, gain perspective, and develop motivation for writing from our own places of hardship or circumstances. Open to writers from all genres.
