I am giving a poetry workshop for writers of color at Hugo House on Sunday, March, 26th. As part of my ARTIST UP Grant LAB, this workshop will be free. You can register through Hugo House here or hit me up with any questions. There will also be a waiting list if the workshop should fill. Artists Up: Artist Trust, 4Culture, Office of Arts & Culture Seattle. Big ups to Hugo House for hosting.
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.
Come write with me.
