Reclaiming the Body is a workshop dedicated to discussing and crafting poems dedicated and inspired by our relationships to our bodies. We’ll explore various performance based and poetic texts dedicated to empowering their audiences to reclaim their bodies. Whether writers have experienced illness, assault, loss and/or shifts within the body, this workshop is a reflective space to embark on a journey of self-discovery of the physical self.  This workshop will consist of guided reflective writing exercises, readings with analysis on structure and form along with a space to share back work. Readings consist  of authors such as Martin Espada, Sonia Sanchez, Morgan Parker, Natalie Diaz and Danez Smith.
