    June 21 • Poetry writing workshop • Sophia Tarin

    A two-part workshop series grounded in the ways our imagined worlds can impact reality.
    In part one, Friday 14th, the fiction workshop, Aziza Kasumov will explore examples from climate and resistance narratives that dare envision a brighter world. Students will be given generative prompts to write their own flash fiction pieces.
    In part two, Friday 21st, the poetry workshop, Sophia Tarin will familiarize participants with the traditional form of Ghazal poetry and empower them to use the form as a tool for expressing revolutionary visions. 

    All proceeds will go toward supporting a Gazan family.
    Sliding scale cost: $20-$50
    The cost of the workshops is on a sliding scale; you can donate between a suggested ranger $20 and $50 for one workshop in the series, or between $40 and $80 to attend both. Please donate what you can. 
    Limited capacity
