This class will be split into two parts. The first half will explore poetic language and the second half will dive into the business of writing. Participants will gain insights into how to incorporate concepts from poetry into their writing. We will also discuss the skills required to advance in your career as a writer such as submitting work for publication, building a network, and applying for grants and fellowships, while addressing the specific challenges writers of color and indigenous writers face when pursuing these opportunities.

This class is part of a series of classes that cover the issues and traditions of writers of color and indigenous writers, and is intended for writers of color and indigenous writers. Participants are welcome to register for one, several, or all of the monthly sessions.

The class is offered on a pay what you can basis with the suggested fee of $15 ($13.50 for Loft members, or $0 for students who are unable to pay) available online. No student will be turned away for not paying. You can register online or in person at each class, where there will also be an opportunity to pay whatever amount is appropriate for you.
