Gentrification & Nostalgia: A Poetry Workshop for Poets of Color [Sarah Maria Medina]

Time: 12:00am - 12:00am PT
Capacity: seat
Member Price: $80.10
General Price: $89.00

All Levels. We will read from a wide range of contemporary poets of color, including Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib, John Manuel-Arias, Luther Hughes, and Xandria Phillips, among others. We will draw from a well of art, both visual and musical. We will look at expanding form as a resistance to gentrification. Think Rumba as an alternative form to the sonnet. Think a break in beat as an expanse across the page. We will write in free verse, generate new work, and discuss redrafting techniques.

Sliding scale pricing available. Please call Hugo House at (206) 322-7030.
