Multilingual Poetry and Voice - Remote!
This generative workshop is meant to serve as a space to reclaim voice for our intended audience by deconstructing the barriers of what is deemed acceptable in writing. Here polyglots will read, discuss and dissect published works of and not limited to Lupe Mendez, Anthologies such as Peínate & Latinext, Valorie Mason, and Lysz Flo's works. There will be a generative prompt where participants are encouraged to use their languages to flow and create deeper meaning within poetry. The intention is to write without self-imposed othering of our identities.
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.
