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