CANCELED: “Queer Vision: Writing and Reading Queer with Anastacia-Renee”
April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Please note that this event has been canceled. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
In this master class with multi-genre writer, educator and interdisciplinary artist, Anastacia-Renee, participants will close-read work written by contemporary and queer writers and create multiple pieces, which will mirror the writers in terms of format and topic, while simultaneously creating and queering their own poems. We will close with a workshop and discussion regarding queer appropriation as well as the difference between writing queer characters and writing from a queer perspective.
The cost to attend this lecture is $10. To register, please visit Cave Canem’s Eventbrite Box Office. Space is limited.
This workshop encourages those who identify as LGBTQ+ to attend and is intended to benefit populations that are traditionally underserved, such as people of color, veterans, those who were formerly incarcerated and people with disabilities. If cost is a barrier to attendance please contact email@example.com as soon as possible, as space is limited.
