Poetry and literature are rife with signs and symbols that point to themes, metaphors, and ideas that offer deeper insight into our fears and preoccupations. Writers Hakim Bellamy, Lauren Camp, Veronica Golos, and Tom Ireland explore the inherent challenges and possibilities of the mysterious and even mystical realm of symbolism in “The Scent of Uncertainty: Four Writers on Signs, Symbols, and Premonitions,” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 21, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation (107 West Barcelona Road, 982-9674). The event is “part poetry, part performance, and part creative nonfiction.” Camp, a blogger, author, writing teacher, and host of Audio Saucepan on KSFR-FM, organized the event.

“I am an analytical person, intent on deciphering and exploring possibilities, but I am also curious about ethics and dark corners,” Camp told Pasatiempo. “What leads to what? Where does one thing come from, and how? Signs, symbols, and premonitions add color to creative writing and give us a chance to consider — and maybe understand — the why of something. I selected the theme because it offered broad interpretations.”
