All Levels | What is poetry as social action? We’ll read and discuss works by poets of diverse backgrounds, heavily BIPOC, challenging the “canon” and forging the path for other writers. We’ll discuss poetry from the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement, poems about immigration, poetry by Native American and Pacific Islander writers, and more; then we’ll write poems inspired by the readings. Poets may include Lucille Clifton, Haunani Kay-Trask, Patricia Smith, Heid Erdrich, Barbara Reyes, Ocean Vuong, and others.

This class takes place on Wet Ink, and sessions can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
