When writing about a difficult history, resilience becomes part of the creative process. Reclaiming a narrative, in many ways, is critical to the spirit of a poem––especially if that history has been marginalized, erased, or silenced. The poem becomes a space for us to persist. In this master class, we will do close readings of poems that activate imagery, tone, and repetition. There will be discussion and generative writing.
