Self-Love & Neocolonialism: A Poetry Workshop for Writers of Color [Sarah Maria Medina]
This all-level poetry workshop will look at the importance of self-love during neocolonialism. We will read from a wide range of contemporary poets of color, including Safia Elhillo, Michael Wasson, Ocean Vuong and Xandria Phillips, among others. We will look at bilingual text and innovative forms as acts of decolonization. We will write in free verse, generate new work and discuss redrafting techniques.
This class is FREE, and offered as part of an ARTISTS UP and Grant LAB award. Grant LAB is funded by the ARTISTS UP partnership comprised of 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and Artist Trust.
