Pre-march teach-ins include Kim’s “pop-up poetry workshop” on writing poems on insects and spiders. Participants will look at model poems by such authors as Elizabeth Alexander, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Natasha Trethewey before writing their own poems, focusing on close observation, writing with precision, and using specialized vocabulary. No prior writing experience necessary; open to all.
