Writing the Girl Child in Fiction and Poetry [Tiphanie Yanique]
What has been the role of the girl in contemporary literature? Do girls have subjectivity? Authority? Adventure? We will engage with the contemporary canon of girlhood and female coming-of-age, learning from it as well as pushing against it. We will be aware that we are writing outside of our current experience; be we men or women, we are not girls. We will use our imaginations as we practice the key craft elements of voice, narration, plot, and theme. Come with your story, poem, or idea—or with just pen and paper. We will write and revise. We will create characters who engage and defy.
