Class Description

This class is free and you do not need to pay or apply for a scholarship. Instead, to join this class fill out This Form. DO NOT use any of the other buttons or links to apply to this class.

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 this session 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 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.

Sábado 23 de Julio 12:00 pm a 1:30 pm

¿Qué pasaría si su escritura no necesitará ser explicada ni traducida? ¿Qué pasaría si pudiera traer todas sus diferentes intersecciones en la página? En esta sesión nos daremos permiso para escribir hacia y para quienes nos entienden. Pensaremos más allá de lo que se considera aceptable por escrito. Como artistas multilingües, leeremos, discutiremos y diseccionamos obras publicadas por autores multilingües, empleando temas de escritura que permiten que nuestros idiomas fluyan sin problemas, creando un significado más profundo e impartiendo más poesía a nuestro trabajo. Haremos esto sin cambiarnos a nosotros mismos; no habrá 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.

About GrubStreet Remote Classes

GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the end of the summer. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. 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! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled 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!

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. Please visit the Resources tab to access the video-conference link.
