Writing Toward & Against Identity [Porochista Khakpour]
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken,” goes the famous quote quite ironically misattributed to Oscar Wilde—but the point still stands! In this multi-genre class, we will explore various practices in service of piecing together and presenting ourselves for the page. What are our personal issues, concerns, worldviews, and themes? How do they intersect with the people in our orbit and the world around us? And in what ways do we define ourselves for the sake of our audience? This class will include some lecture, some generative writing, and some light workshopping. Come prepared to listen and share.
- Porochista Khakpour will speak at Word Works | Porochista Khakpour on Writing Toward & Against Identity on Friday, Dec. 4, at 6 pm PT.
