The Political Act of Vulnerability [Luther Hughes]
All Levels | What makes a poem vulnerable? How does one become vulnerable on the page, and what is the risk of such vulnerability? What about vulnerability is political? This class will close-read poems, prose, and other genres of art by June Jordan, Solmaz Sharif, Beyoncé, Carl Phillips, Sharon Olds, Tarell Alvin McCraney, Adrienne Rich, and more. Through discussion and writing exercises, students will practice being vulnerable on the page and find power in their disclosures.
