Event description

Description

In this workshop, participants will explore the works of, both, queer/trans* and cisgender/heterosexual poets who use experiment with form to enhance the impact of their content. Through readings, discussions, writing, and constructive criticism, participants will practice writing poems in unconventional forms. Authors whose works we will explore include Eduardo C. Corral, Taylor Johnson, Jean Valentine, and Ocean Vuong.
