Deep River will continue the theme of Heavy Magic with three new

poets, Patricia Smith, Danusha Lameris, and Diane Frank in 2022-23                    

Some poetry is magic. Casts spells. Shifts consciousness. Some

poetry takes on the unbearable issues of a culture or a time. After

two years of pandemic, over one million dead in the U.S. alone, and Americans

fighting over vaccinations and masks, what has been released from

the shadows is the revelation—yet again—that the heart of America

is broken. It’s not just America. All over the world poets are speaking

for the broken hearts of their culture, the loss of so many people to

variants of COVID-19, the experience of racism, inequality, poverty, and

climate change.

 

Some poetry dares to speak from the heart of horror, as well as the

heart of desire, from the heart of sorrow, as well as the heart of joy,

mingling love and hate, doing the dance of the opposites. Such

poetry can be part of the process of healing our broken hearts. We

will read and write under the influence of the heavy magic of Patricia Smith, Danusha Lameris, and Diane Frank.
