This generative workshop will examine poetic techniques through studying conversations between the poet, the social constructs and the laws of nature. Poems by Aracelis Girmay, June Jordan, & Ross Gay will be utilized as a literary blueprint workshop experience. This experience is designed to propel our imaginations as writers and critical thinkers.
This class will be led by Mahogany L. Browne, a writer, organizer & educator. Currently, the Artistic Director of Urban Word NYC, Browne has received literary fellowships from Agnes Gund, Air Serenbe, Cave Canem, Poets House & Rauschenberg. She is the author of Woke Baby, Black Girl Magic, Kissing Caskets, Dear Twitter and forthcoming Woke: A Young Poet's Guide to Justice. She resides in Brooklyn, NY.
