Get it Straight, This is Queer Writing

In this class, we will read the works of Hilton Als, Michelle Tea, and queer contemporary poets. We will discuss, analyze, and celebrate contemporary queer writing; we will also create and workshop a first draft of a poem, short story, or editorial essay, with foundational support from our reading. We will talk about the role of queer writers in a predominately straight literary scene and bulldoze stereotypes along the way.
