For BIPOC | Deep Empathy: The Persona Poem

How do we reach into the soul of another and find ourselves? The persona poem offers us a chance to experience empathy in new and meaningful ways while recreating our own stories. In this course, we will practice writing persona poems and read work from Ai, Patricia Smith, Natasha Trethewey, and others.

Note: This class is intended as a space specifically for students that identify as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color. We ask that students that do not identify as such kindly respect this intention and refrain from registering.

Registration dates: 

August 15: Registration for free classes opens at 10:30 am
