Seeing our Stanzas: Ekphrasis & Identity with Rachel Eliza Griffiths

In this one-day workshop we will write towards both personal and national identity and imaginations through the space of visual art. Using American Stanzas: 2006 – 2016 as a three-dimensional text, Rachel Eliza Griffiths will lead a detailed writing workshop that will include close readings of Cave Canem poetry that inspired her exhibit, generative writing prompts, and interactive discussions with participants about their own writing practices. This workshop will focus its energy on the richly, complex act and art of bridging language and imagery.

Landscapes of Memory with Khadijah Queen

As sources of both pride and contention across the globe and across human history, both land and heritage intertwine in our thoughts, our bodies, our conscious and subconscious ways of living and being in the world. How do inherited, lost or stolen homeland(s) and/or ancestral knowledge take up residence in the writer's imagination? This workshop will explore through writing prompts and freewrites, as well as close examinations of a variety of sample works, how the past and present intersect with place, body and memory.
