ClassWriting about Others: A Class for Writers of Color and Indigenous Writers
In this class, we'll consider the issues that arise when an author chooses to write about others in a literary nonfiction form. We'll also read and write short pieces about others—any individual or group that is not the author themselves. Be prepared to come and engage with the group in an honest and authentic way.
Wednesday, January 6th's class is from 6:30–8:30 p.m., and Saturday, January 16th's class is from 1–4 p.m.
The second half of Saturday's class (2:30–4 p.m.) will be spent workshopping. Students may share up to three pages they would like workshopped.
This class is part of a series of classes that cover the issues and traditions of writers of color and Indigenous writers and is intended for writers of color and Indigenous writers to work on their craft in a space that centers them and their work. We ask all participants to be cognizant of that core value. Minnesota human rights laws prevent the exclusion of anyone based on their identity. But if you are not a writer of color or Indigenous writer, please be mindful of the space and energy you take up in a class intended to uplift traditionally marginalized and silenced communities. Anyone being disruptive may be asked to leave.
The class is offered on a pay what you can basis with the suggested fee of $30 ($27 for Loft members). Students may select the "pay what you can" option and enter any amount, including $0.
This class will take place over Zoom. Meeting information and directions will be sent after registration.
