Description

Nature and the Socio-Political Body is a generative workshop. Participants will examine poetic techniques by studying conversations between the poet, the social constructs, and the laws of nature. Poems by Aracelis Girmay, June Jordan, Rumi & Ross Gay will be utilized as a literary blueprint in this 4-week writing experience. This experience is designed to propel our imaginations as writers and critical thinkers. This is a safe space for all. Each workshop will include writing prompts, poetry analyzation, and editing techniques and will culminate with a community performance at The Betsy Hotel.
