Relax, listen to poetry, and write some poems of your own with Irish poet and peace activist Pádraig Ó Tuama.

Pádraig Ó Tuama reads his poem, "The Facts of Life," and talks about its origin.

Join Pádraig Ó Tuama, host of On Being's "Poetry Unbound," as he leads discussions, readings, and writing sessions exploring the place of poetry, craft, language, and form in our lives.

Each day, you examine poems—some well known and other lesser known—and explore the artistry behind them. You delve beyond the how of a poem and look at the why of a poem. Why did it need to be written? What does this poem explore about being human? What is the intuition and intelligence of this poem? What is its hunger?

These questions open up questions in ourselves, too, questions about how we make meaning in our lives, or use art, or craft language to shape relationships or solitude. This workshop includes time to write and share—whether prose, journaling, or poetry. All are welcome, from beginners to seasoned writers.
