How To Lose Every Little Thing: A Poetry Workshop with Gabriel Ojeda-Sague

This workshop will explore how poetry has dealt with and can deal with loss at all scales. Central to this question is a consideration that we will go through together of what grief has to do with form. Past, potential, minor, trivial, and grave losses will all be considered and written through. Participants do not need to bring or prepare any materials beforehand, nor is any experience with the question in prior writing required.

Ticket Options


Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué is a gay, Latino Leo living in Chicago. He is the author of the poetry collections Jazzercise Is a Language (The Operating System, 2018), which examines the exercise craze of the 1980s, and Oil and Candle (Timeless, Infinite Light, 2016), a meditation on ritual and racism. Ojeda-Sagué is also the author of chapbooks on gay sex, Cher, the Legend of Zelda, and anxious bilingualism. His third book, Losing Miami, considers the potential consequences of climate change and sea level rise on that city, and is forthcoming from Civil Coping Mechanisms in 2019.
