See Map
Level: For Everyone
Adult (18+)
12 seats max

A seminar highlighting Asian and Pacific Islander writers, discussing their works, relevant themes and context, and writing to prompts inspired by their words.  We'll watch and read short works together by A/PI writers and performers across genres (interdisciplinary, poetry for the page, stage). Writers will include Ocean Vuong, Barbara Reyes, Jason Bayani, Regie Cabico, Craig Santos Perez, and Kathy JetnĚ„il-Kijiner.  Students will leave with inspiration from a sampling of contemporary API writers and feel emboldened in their own writing as well.

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.
