Mondays, May 17 – June 21, 2021, 4:30pm-6:30pm PT

I’ll be teaching an online class for BIPOC writers: Talking Back: Writing in Conversation with Other Texts.

We all know that words carry weight, but some words—especially those bound up with the cultural power of political speeches, sacred texts, and canonical literature—can seem overwhelming in their authority. We’ll choose texts that have influenced us—for better or for worse—and use a variety of techniques to respond to them, play with them, challenge them, and upend them.

If tuition is a barrier to your participation, the Literary Arts Access Program covers 60% of the class tuition. Contact Susan Moore at if you would like to take this class at the Access Rate.

Thursday, May 20, 2021, 7pm PT
