What you'll learn in this poetry class:

In times of injustice and unrest, it is the work of the poet to incite change. To make revolutionary art is to take responsibility for reality.

Every craft has a tether of social orientation. We do well to tie the development of our craft to the liberation of all people. In so doing, we relax into the potential of art to be an absolutely humanizing process, in which we gain a more nuanced insight into reality as we digest it. And as poets with true insight, we can use revolutionary praxis to transform reality. To make revolutionary art involves birthing great works on the page.

This 4-week workshop will focus on social analysis and its critical relationship to poetic craft. We will use as guides: poems by revolutionary artists, short texts on historical analysis, and the poems we write along the way. 

Join us and write poems that matter, rooted in social justice and informed by critical praxis, social and historical truth.
