The Hope Storytelling Project: Being a Witness


Calendar event image

Humans and poems are both witnesses. Poems record what it means to be alive and to be living, setting words into the inconceivable and the human imagination. In this time of change, poems are more necessary than ever in recording the present. This week, we will be transitioning from exploring the self and the emotion into the self and the world . This workshop will urge us to bear witness to our own experiences, confronting and exploring what we are and what we remember.

The Hope Storytelling Project @ the Cambridge Public Library is virtual series of 5 bi-weekly poetry workshops, discussing the theme of hope, in partnership with the Cambridge Public Library. Hosted and taught by Harvard students: David Xiang and Alisha YiNo prior experience in poetry needed. Everyone is welcome! For any questions, please contact David Xiang at
