What We’ll Do

How do words work their magic? How do they speak to us across time and place? And what does the art of magic have to do with poetry? These are some of the questions that Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma, an esteemed poet and performer, will help us answer. From his yurt in Vashon Island, Washington, he’ll discuss the challenges of understanding poetry, and share parts of an interactive poetry workshop that he has offered around the world.
