"I equate poetry with borrowing. The poet borrows lines, words, emotions, and points of view. Still, it is what we do with the borrowing that makes the poems entirely singular. We can even borrow from our own memories, which often transform over a lifetime. Borrowing suggests that we will return what we take temporarily, but once a poem is written and put into the world, it is entirely the readers. This relationship is the purpose of the poem. The true goal of poetry is sharing, creating a connection between the written word and the reader. Together, through some writing exercises, we will explore ways to borrow from the world, and from our own memory, to discover something new," says Kirsten Casey
