Taking a Stand: Poetry and Prose as Peace March [Carolyne Wright]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | This course will activate a peace march in words, a campaign for justice with voices of witness confronting war, racism, environmental destruction, genocide, political corruption, and other conditions of extremity we all face in this uncertain and troubling era. With the anthology Take a Stand: Art Against Hate as a guide, we will read poems and prose that respond to urgent political and social issues, and through writing exercises and workshop discussions we will create our own work that inspires and provokes.
