(VIRTUAL) WRITING WORKSHOP
Jennifer Huang: Constructing the Self Through Narrative Poetry
7-9PM (9-11 ET) MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7
 
LOCATION: LIVE ON ZOOM



This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.

In this workshop, we will explore how stories of the self are constructed over time and across poems. How can we use poetry to tell stories of ourselves in a way that makes room for complexity, contradiction, and messiness? We will look at the palinode—a form of poetry in which the poet retracts something said previously—and how rewriting and writing-in-process can make space for these possibilities. What opens when we challenge the authority and “rightness” of our speakers and our poems? This will be a generative workshop, and participants will leave with two drafts of a poem. To make the most out of this workshop, participants are encouraged to bring a poem (or several) they are working on.
