Generative Workshop for Writers of Color
In this generative poetry workshop, we will draw upon key concepts from Lama Rod Owens’ book Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation Through Anger and Audre Lorde’s essay “The Uses of Anger” to explore the institutional and interpersonal impacts of love, rage, and healing through a BIPOC feminist and social justice framework. Then, we will apply this framework to analyze poems by Audre Lorde, June Jordan, and other BIPOC poets. Through mindfulness and generative self-reflective prompts, participants will learn about ways to skillfully respond to our anger, emotions, and vulnerabilities through poetry.
Ultimately, workshop participants will explore how the inner work of healing and embracing our anger as a response to racism can strengthen relationships with ourselves and our BIPOC communities through the tender and liberatory practice of poetics.
3 hours on Saturday | April 15th | Noon-3pm Eastern | $120 ($96 for Members)
All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
