ATELIER OF HEALING: POETRY ABOUT TRAUMA AND RECOVERY
* This is a complimentary web book or e-anthology, exclusively created to promote poetry as a healing art. The publication is freely available, and can be found HERE.
We have all experienced pain of some kind — heartbreak, illness, distress, abuse, violence, disaster, loss, grief. How would you render your personal experience into lyric and narrative, to transform the pain into something of profound beauty? Poetry has long been known to be one of the great traditional healing arts, alongside dance, music, painting, theatre. As a creative practice, poetry can become a remarkable way to enhance personal healing, wellness and change. It can be as mending as it is ameliorating, as renewing as it is restorative. Edited by Eric Tinsay Valles and Desmond F. X. Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, this anthology features over 100 writers from across the world, all sharing their distinct insights on the matter of dealing and healing.
