Naming Our Roots: Seeds for Multilingual, Multicultural Narrative Poems FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full

Whether inspired by the photographs we carry or the stories about our names, participants will be guided in this engaging workshop to write down and to share aloud rough drafts of poems, which reflect the presence or erasure of their respective cultural, ethnic, and linguistic heritages. Participants will also further develop their own appreciation of code-switching, namely, incorporating another language or dialect into their writing. Please bring in an object of personal meaning (a photo, a newspaper clipping, a trinket, for example) as a writing prompt for yourself and for others. Limited to 15 adult participants. Open to all adult poets (18+), emerging to experienced.
