Exploring the work of poets Robert Hayden, Terrance Hayes, Sonia Sanchez, and others, we will find avenues into writing what we work so hard to keep locked away.
Guided brainstorming will be implemented to build characters for our fiction work; we’ll practice with timed drills to flesh out aspects of their personality and generate possible plot angles. After writing examples of these aspects of character, participants will read some of their work and give each other feedback; Participants will leave with tangible detail of at least one character that will enable them to begin constructing a story or fleshing out a character in a novel or short story.
