Altadena Poets Laureate invite you to attend the first “Ode to the Land” workshop at the Altadena Main Library community room.

“Ode to the Land” is a public poetry project that will pair senior citizens (55+) and high school students for poetry workshops and offer two public poetry readings focused on place, home, and odes in iconic natural and cultural settings in Altadena. The workshops will feature guest poets who have expertise in presenting the ode as well as other lyric and narrative forms of poetry.
About the Presenter
This workshop will be led by Teresa Mei Chuc. Teresa Mei Chuc was born in Sài Gòn, Việt Nam and fled her Vietnamese homeland with her mother and brother shortly after the Việt Nam War, spending three and a half months in a freight boat stranded in the South China Sea before being rescued. Teresa is the author of three full-length collections of poetry, Invisible Light (2018), Keeper of the Winds (2014), and Red Thread (2012). Her poetry chapbook, Incidental Takes, was published by Hummingbird Press in 2023. She teaches literature and writing at a public school in Los Angeles.
