Caesura – Writing Silence in the Face of Uncertainty, Adversity, and Injustice

December 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Voice is an uncontested necessity for the liberation of individuals and communities. But how do we reflect and write about difficulties when we may be holding crippling silence? And when we are silenced, what power can be found in choosing to be silent? There is a need for reflection, perseverance and persistence during times of #metoo, Black Lives Matter, and immigration. Participants will generate work and review literature while reconsidering unique ways to find voice.

This workshop takes place Wednesdays, thru Dec 5

Jo Reyes-Boitel is a poet, playwright, essayist, arts activist, rabid music listener, researcher, percussionist, and Texas transplant by way of Minnesota, Florida, Mexico, and Cuba.
