Claro qué Yes! Writing in Spanglish - Remote!
If part of your identity is rooted in the Spanish language, you are probably a fluent Spanglish-speaker. Codeswitching is more than just communicating seamlessly using two languages, it is also a way of inhabiting space and identity and your writing should freely reflect this experience.
This class is for beginner and advanced personal narrative and memoir writers who want tell their stories in Spanglish. During this 3-hour class, through writing exercises you will generate ideas for 3 essays and begin work on one which we will workshop.
The class will be writing-intensive and you will be assigned some reading materials and preparation before we meet.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
