Queer Vision: Writing and Reading Queer [Anastacia-Renee]
All Levels | In each class, participants will close-read Tommy Pico, Jericho Brown, Mattilda Berstein-Sycamore, and Danez Smith’s current work. Participants will create multiple pieces, which will mirror the writers in terms of format and topic while simultaneously creating and queering their own poems. We’ll end class with a workshop and discussion regarding queer appropriation and the difference between writing queer characters and writing from a queer perspective.
