Free Workshop 11-2 SUNDAY 5/30 “Tell Me Your Names” with Teri Ellen Cross Davis
This generative workshop explores family and ancestry through poetry. Using close readings of Etheridge Knight, Rita Dove, Lucille Clifton, and more, we consider how poems can examine, celebrate, and/or reconsider history. Discussions may center around how persona and voice inform written work.
