Event description


On June 12, 2016 on the same day as the Pulse massacre, we lost the genius, jamaican, black feminist lesbian author Michelle Cliff. In honor of Michelle Cliff and her legacy and all of our unkillable queer of color flamboyance this one-night webinar is for writers who want their words to make the impossible possible, those of us who will not be content until the bodies of our readers answer the challenge of our words. Through exercises inspired by Michelle Cliff's work and in honor of our loved ones at Pulse we will bring our words together in a cleansing, purifying, unforgettable flame. In preparation (or to convince yourself it's worth it) read Alexis's 2009 essay on Michelle Cliff's book If I Could Write This in Fire: http://vc.bridgew.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1186&context=jiws
