Letters of Love
In this class, we will set our intentions to engage love as a "practice," through writing epistolary poems, journal prompts, and mini memoirs. We will incorporate meditative techniques and breathing exercises. We will use All About Love by bell hooks, Mama Phife Represents by Cheryl Boyce-Taylor, and Life's Companion Journal Writing as a Spiritual Quest by Christina Baldwin as our foundation and guides. Text will be provided by instructor.
