ClassCreating Community Through Processing Trauma 2: A Class for Writers of Color and Indigenous Writers
In this session, we will build on discussion, methodologies, and questions raised in the initial session around this topic, held last spring (students need not have attended that session in order to attend this one). Specifically, we will explore possibilities and strategies for how writers from historically marginalized communities might build community through processing various lived experiences of trauma on the page, organizing them into a book or anthology, and, eventually, publishing them. We will also investigate the limits of creating community through processing trauma through writing.
Students should bring 10 photocopies of up to 3 pages they would like workshopped.
This class is part of a series of classes that cover the issues and traditions of writers of color, native, and indigenous writers, and is intended for writers of color, native, and indigenous writers. Participants are welcome to register for one, several, or all of the sessions.
The class is offered on a pay-what-you-can basis with the suggested fee of $15 ($13.50 for Loft members or $0 for students who are unable to pay) available online.
THIS CLASS HAS BEEN MOVED ONLINE out of concern for the COVID-19 epidemic. The class will meet virtually at the scheduled time. You will receive information on how to participate by email after you sign up.
