Event Information

This all-level poetry workshop will look at the importance of self-love during neocolonialism. We will read from a wide range of contemporary poets of color, including Safia Elhillo, Michael Wasson, Ocean Vuong and Xandria Phillips, among others. We will look at bilingual text and innovative forms as acts of decolonization. We will write in free verse, generate new work and discuss redrafting techniques.
