Cuento Poems Workshop: Turn an experience or a description of a person or place, real or imagined, into poetry that resonates. We will discuss some poems in the poetry anthology Wide Awake, edited by Suzanne Lummis, and the column American Life in Poetry, edited by Ted Kooser, to explore what a cuento poem is, and participants will write their own cuento poem.
