Homecoming and Homegoing: Writing the Girl Protagonist [Anastacia-Renee]

All Levels | In this class we’ll discuss and analyze clips from classic movies (The Wiz, The Wizard of Oz, Whale Rider, Crooklyn and The Secret Life of Bees) and books (Homegoing, The Color Purple, and Poet X) centered on the voices, journey, environment, feminism and womanism of girl protagonists. You’ll spend the first three weeks analyzing, discussing and responding to generative writing prompts. In weeks four through six you’ll write poetry, prose and micro-fiction, creating solid and multidimensional girl characters of your own.
