Writing from the Root and Through the Body is a writing course designed to help you explore the relationship between your culture of origin, the language of the body, and the manifestation of a true sense of self. Through guided writing and the readings of specific poems, you will be offered a multiplicity of lenses to expand the perception of culture beyond a racial or ethnic identity, transcending and including it. At the end, you will walk away with a body of work that presents you as more than a name, a language, a body, and set of cultural practices. In other words, writing that shows the vastness of being You.

This is an online class. Each week, a new week will open full of resources, reflections, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Students should expect to spend 3-5 hours per week perusing resources and readings, answering a discussion question, engaging in several writing prompts, and responding to peers’ work. A gentle but clear process allows each participant to work at her/his own pace.
