What if your writing didn’t need to be explained or translated? What if you could bring all of your different intersections to the page? In these sessions we’ll allow ourselves to write for and to those who get it. We’ll step outside the box of what is deemed acceptable in writing. As multilingual contemporary writers, we will read, discuss, and dissect published works of multilingual authors, and write to prompts where our many languages will flow seamlessly to create deeper meaning and more poetry in our work. We’ll do this without othering ourselves; there’ll be no italics, definitions, or bolds. We’ll be our multilayered selves in our writing, without apology or assimilation needed. Our voices will be heard by our intended audience. Over the course of this class, we will recenter ourselves in our work and discussions, read multilingual authors, and review our works in progress to ensure they embody our whole selves. This workshop is open to writers of all levels and experience!

3 miércoles empezando el 3 de mayo 5:00pm-7:00pm

¿Qué pasaría si su escritura no necesitara explicación o traducción? ¿Qué pasaría si se pudieran llevar sus diferentes intersecciones a la página? En estas sesiones nos desataremos para escribir hacia quienes nos entienden. Pensaremos más allá de lo que se considera aceptable por escrito. Como artistas multilingües del mundo contemporáneo, leeremos, discutiremos y diseccionaremos obras publicadas por distintos autores, empleando temas de escritura que permitan que nuestros idiomas fluyan sin problemas, creando un significado más profundo e impartiendo un mayor elemento poético a nuestro trabajo. Haremos esto sin perder de vista el yo auténtico; no habrán cursivas, ni negritas: en nuestra escritura, seremos nosotros mismos en múltiplos y sin necesidad de disculpas ni asimilaciones. Nuestras voces serán escuchadas por nuestro público previsto. A lo largo de este curso, nos centraremos en nuestro trabajo y en nuestras discusiones, leeremos piezas de autores multilingües y examinaremos nuestro progreso para asegurar que esté encarnando un yo completo. Este taller está abierto para cualquier escritor de cualquier nivel y experiencia.
