FREE Lucille Clifton: The Art of Brevity (for BIPOC)
This is a free class for Black, Indigenous*, and people of color in any literary form, including poets and prose writers, and in any genre.
In this class, we will explore the nuances of the images created by using the language of our own culture. Through readings, activities, and discussion, we will practice writing poems that highlight the images we see every day.
*Indigenous includes a wide spectrum of individuals, such as those native to North and South America, island nations, and/or from homelands impacted by colonialism.
Registration for free classes opens on August 30 with general public registration.
