Spittin’ Mad: Poetry Workshop with Kai Cheng Thom

  • Women's Center, Frist 243 Frist Campus Center (map)

This workshop examines the revolutionary work of poets and writers such as Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, d’bi young anitafrika, and Ntozake Shange, and provides participants with writing and performance exercises designed to increase self-knowledge, confidence, and writing technique. We will explore issues of accessibility, representation, and safety onstage. Active participation is encouraged – attendees are encouraged to bring their writing, experiment, and push their comfort zones, but personal limits will always be respected.
Lunch will be served, all undergraduate & graduate students, staff, faculty and administrators are welcome to attend.

Please RSVP here.
