In her latest poetry collection, Sara Henning tries to make meaning of grief, after losing her mother to metastatic colon cancer. “I lost my center,” Sara says, and Terra Incognita is her way to regain a firm stance on this earth. In this episode, Sara does a live reading of her poem “Queening” around the 25-minute mark.

In the latest episode of the Make Meaning Podcast, host Lynne Golodner interviews Sara Henning about where poetry comes from, how to let the soul speak and how to keep on living after immense grief. Her poems interrogate meaning, and Lynne and Sara discuss how poems – and all literature – can be a companion at our loneliest times.
