Through dialogue, readings, and self-reflection we will begin to explore the concept of gender in order to better understand ourselves, each other, and the world in which we live. This three-hour class will require all participants to commit to creating a safe and supportive container so that writers can create and share bravely and authentically. Participants will receive a packet with selections from Gloria Anzaldúa, Aaron Apps, Micah Bateman, Kate Bornstein, Alexander Chee, Sandra Cisneros, Junot Díaz, Akwaeke Emezi, Audre Lorde, and Carmen Maria Machado and writing exercises inspired by each selection. Participants will leave with the first draft of a poem or personal essay, and will get the opportunity to share their work in progress and receive on-the-spot feedback from the instructor and peers (clear guidelines for feedback will be given and strictly enforced). All genders are welcome.
