Poetry Workshop: Writing Home
April 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0
RAWI is excited to launch it’s second In Solidarity: RAWI Creative Writing Workshops in San Francisco!
Please join us for a poetry workshop, “Writing Home” led by Deema K Shehabi at the Presidio Branch Library Community Room.
Workshop: Writing Home
Having lost our way home through dystopia, exile, and creeping environmental degradation, how is it possible to reconstruct and/or recreate the idea of home through writing? By reading and studying a mix of contemporary poets who write about this theme, this workshop will seek to place participants in a space where they can negotiate their identities through language and explore the relationship between the cultures, histories, and geographical locations of their original national and ethnic group.
The workshop includes a discussion and featured readings by Nathalie Khankan, Lena Khalif Tuffah, and Priscilla Wathington.
