How Food Invokes Poetry (starting at $99)

How Food Invokes Poetry is a three-week workshop that is an invocation to all five senses and brings alive both food and poetry. You will engage with multi-dimensional paradigms by bringing your own experiences, close reading of evocative poetic texts related to food as well as creating your own food poems. oetry is witness, and what better location to witness than at the kitchen table? Ingredients, recipes, and rituals of honoring are a celebration and a meditation. Mealtimes hold us, as well as history. Every morsel is an activation process; stories have been buried within our pots and pans. Flavors serve as a platter of beginnings and endings of relationships, cultures, identities, memory, medicine, and bodies.

**All readings will be done online, and materials shall be provided by the teacher during class as slides and handouts.

Kashiana lives in North Carolina and is a TEDx speaker with two full length poetry collections and a chapbook. Her newest full-length collection, Witching Hour is due in 2024 with Glass Lyre press . Kashiana serves as Managing Editor for Poets Reading the News.
