ClassWriting Crossover YA: A Class for Writers of Color and Indigenous Writers
What is "crossover YA," and how do you write it well? We will examine this question in this class, and even attempt to answer it. Bring your own work-in-progress to class, as well as your questions, and a willingness to try new writing exercises.
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 $15 ($13.50 for Loft members). Students may select the "pay what you can" option and enter any amount, including $0. No student will be turned away for not paying.
This class will take place over Zoom. Meeting information and directions will be sent after registration.
