How do we make sense out of the past, and how does it inform who we have become? How do poets use various craft tools to wrestle with memory and the stories that make us?

In this generative workshop with Tiana Nobile, we will give form to our memories through writing. We will read and write poems that consider the layers of the self, such as the history of our names and familial inheritances and we will then use these approaches as models for writing our own poems.

Potential works to be discussed include poems by Aimee Nezhukumatahil, Joseph Legaspi, Terrance Hayes, Chen Chen, and more.

Tiana Nobile is the author of CLEAVE (Hub City Press, 2021). She is a Korean American adoptee, Kundiman fellow, and recipient of a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award. A finalist of the National Poetry Series and Kundiman Poetry Prize, her writing has appeared in Poetry Northwest, The New Republic, Guernica, and Southern Cultures, among others.
