Writing Queerly [Sara Brickman]
All Levels | Queer writers forced outside the margins have learned to write outside the margins: inventing new forms, language, new names for the world around us. In this generative workshop, students will trace the lineages and poetic strategies of queer writers from Sappho, Whitman, Audre Lorde, and James Baldwin to Maggie Nelson, sam sax, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jericho Brown. Then we’ll write our own words to honor the weird, the sexy, the rough, and the majestic. Expect a supportive peer community, detailed feedback from the instructor, and the opportunity to write what you’re afraid to write. Students of all identities welcome.
