Disabled Poetics & Crip Ecologies
This workshop session delves into Disabled poetics and Crip Ecologies in its many hybrid, justice-informed, climate-aware, performance-based, and multi-approach radiances. This poetry of the body-mind has a long lineage and helps us identify, transform, and strategize various tools in rhythm, sound, form, approach, and technique. All abilities are celebrated and all disabilities uplifted. We’ll unpack and generate new writing together using mapping, access awareness, and memory building to explore the possibilities and care of our reading and writing.
Poets possibly considered but not limited to: JJJJJerome Ellis, Saleem Hue Penny, Cyrée Jarelle Johnson, Suzi Garcia, Walela Nehanda, Leroy Moore, Arianna Monet, Joselia Rebekah Hughes, and more!
3 hours on Sunday | Dec 10 | 12-3pm ET | $105 ($90 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.
