About the Class
This workshop seeks to explore the idea of audience while debunking the myths that our audience is either everyone or no one. We will hone in on what tools writers use to signal to their audiences that the poem is to/for them, how we add love, empathy, and intimacy into our writing, and how we can be more in use of our work as gathering grounds and private lines of communication.
The Distinguished Visiting Writers Series will also be presenting an evening with Danez Smith on Thursday, Septemer 12, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Burton Barr Central Library in the Pulliam Auditorium (1221 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004).
