Writing Restorative Justice

All Levels | Juliana Spahr’s 2001 collection of poems, Fuck You—Aloha—I Love You, explores themes of connection and separation, shifting its gaze from insider to outsider. Her poetic drive toward community collaboration will be this course’s ethos. Our restorative writing practice will center connection rather than isolation, seeking relationship rather than harm in the process of writing into social issues. Students will read writing across genres from authors such as jayy dodd, Ross Gay, Joy Harjo, Lena Khalaf Tuffaha, June Jordan, and Louise Erdrich.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
