Beyond Baroque: Poetry & Oral Histories - How to Honor Memory with Cynthia Guardado
Reimagine writing about family history and personal history in a way that honors your voice and memory. This workshop will ask you to dive into fragmented memories and incomplete histories in order to help you create a method for telling these stories.
*One scholarship will be awarded to a QTPOC/BIPOC L.A.-residing individual who would like to join but does not have the means to do so. Please email us if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org
A Zoom link will be provided to all registered participants 24 hours before and on the day of the workshop.
