In this session, we’ll write a world outside the confines of colonization.
Let’s build the world we desire! In this generative workshop, we will dive into our visions of the worlds we would like to exist in. How can the sentiments and struggles of today’s experience shape this alternate reality? What environments can you envision outside of suffering and exclusivity? With these questions in mind, we will explore world-building, not as escapism but as a vision of a better world. We will read from journals such as FIYAH Lit Mag, Skew Magazine, Black Quantum Futurism, discuss what we read, and write to prompts. All levels of writing experience and genres welcome!
About GrubStreet Remote Classes
GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the end of the summer. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. 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! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled 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!
