St. Paul – Reflection and Renewal through Poetry with Sun Yung Shin and Anh-Hoa Thi Nguyen

Saturday, April 2 | 9:00 am–3:00 pm


National Poetry Month is a time to celebrate poetry and the human spirit. April in Minnesota offers an annual opportunity to contemplate renewal and rebirth. Join poets Sun Yung Shin and Anh-Hoa Thi Nguyen in a daylong retreat designed to support participants’ rest, reflection, renewal, and creativity. Facilitators will lead participants through somatic exercises to support mind, body, and spirit, and poetry readings and creative writing prompts to provide time and space to connect with inner and collective wholeness, spaciousness, and possibility. Participants need not have any formal creative writing training whatsoever. This is an experience not focused on writing as a profession, but as an ancient, musical, and deeply human practice available to everyone.

Continental breakfast and lunch are included.

Sun Yung Shin is a poet, writer, educator, and bodyworker. She approaches poetry as a human right and a space of moral imagination.

Anh-Hoa Thi Nguyen is a poet, community artist, activist, and educator. As a creator and healer, she is committed to cultivating shared humanity through food, storytelling, and authentic connection.
