Morrison, Lorde, and Shange: Poetry, Place, and Protest Across Generations and Genres

All Levels | We will critically read, intensely discuss, unpack and explore the masterful words and the social and literary impact of Toni Morrison, Audre Lorde, and Ntozake Sange. You’ll create a collection of three pieces of mixed-genre work using Morrison (fiction), Lorde, (poetry) and Sange (monologue) as your foundation. Classes will be devoted to studying each writer and creating first drafts and revisions, and polishing your work. Participants will have the opportunity to share their work publicly in a group reading one week after the last class.
