Information about our courses for children and young people can be found here. Practices that encourage the author to take into account his or her own experience of racial and immigrant issues will cover the first half of the course, and we will do the practices in the second half. Have you got yourself into this? We will try various spur-of-the-moment practices to unleash our forces of observing, remembering and abstracting.
Another writer getting bogged down is trying to recreate another person's notion of a narrative. Authors are invited to write poetry that tells a tale and witnesses racial and immigrant questions in this hands-on work. Damp people use shape, sound and "longing" in a strategic way to record emotions, feelings, nature, place, myth, myth, place, myth, myth, and the policy of my vocal activity.
Is your poetry alarming and makes the readers testify to racial and immigrantism? Among others, the attendees will be reading and referencing poetry by Tyehimba Jess, Kimiko Hahn, Pedro Pietri, Adrienne Rich and Sonia Sanchez. Poetry is required to try at least one new shape that can contain the blue, tento, haiku, villanelle, sunnet and witch.
