Poem Medicine is a ritual of hope and healing that looks to poems to help us make the crossing. Together, we will read and write poems that make space for our full experience—as we attend to what we have lost and explore the gifts and opportunities on the other side.
“I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Sage walking alongside and blazing the trail via her work and practicing. I am grateful for her willingness to grieve openly and to be open to grace—to write about it, and to share it” – Zia S.
“I had no idea I could alchemize grief to gratitude so quickly and powerfully until I participated in this ritual with Sage.” – Anne P.
After you sign up, you'll receive an email with access to the classroom.
On Saturday, May 11 we'll meet live from 10 a.m. to noon PT.
For me, poetry is both a literary form and a way of life. I write because I am obsessed with the craft of poem-making. I teach because I believe reading and writing poems prepares us to inhabit our humanity.
I am the author of the poetry collection Like the Heart, the World from Queen of Wands Press and these nonfiction books from Writer’s Digest Books: Writing the Life Poetic, Fierce on the Page, and The Productive Writer. My work has been published widely, winning a variety of awards and honors.
I started teaching poetry at New York University in 1995 and have been lecturing and teaching nationally at workshops, conferences, and online ever since. My articles about the writing life have been featured in multiple editions of Poet’s Market, Writer’s Market, Guide to Self-Publishing, and Writer’s Digest magazine for the past decade.
I am a graduate of Brown University and the Creative Writing Program at New York University where I was awarded a full fellowship.
Welcome to my global learning community where poets and writers gather to write, explore, and discover what's possible in our lives and our work.
“Sage is an invaluable guide. Now I can do more than "get through" the inevitable stumbling blocks. Thanks to Sage, I spend less time in upset and can find opportunity in every challenge.” – Pamela K.
