On Memory: A Generative Workshop

Led by Bianca Alyssa Pérez

Saturday, February 25, 2:00 - 3:15 pm Central Time
Virtual

This workshop draws inspiration from participants' memories, using memories as a personal archive for creative work. The workshop opens conversation about the relationship between personal narrative, transcendence, and community to explore healing. Using Gloria Anzaldua's imagistic ideas of "nepantla" and "cenote" as a baseline, participants will use these same theories to confront their personal archives/memories to inspire writing (I will provide pull quotes from relevant Anzalduan texts). They will be asked to write about a family memory in as much detail as possible. Participants will then exchange memories with each other and write a piece that remembers that memory from another perspective.

  • Registration fee: $30
