Roots. Wounds. Words.: A Literary Arts Revolution for BIPOC Storytellers presents Writing Deliciously: The Poetry of Food led by Jane Wong

October 11, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - October 18, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

Tue, Oct 11th 2022 at 7:00 PM EDT and Tue, Oct 18th 2022 at 10:00 PM EDT

In “From Blossoms,” poet Li-Young Lee writes: “O, to take what we love inside, / to carry within us an orchard.” Together, we will delve into the intimate sensory memories that food evokes. How can writing about food open up evocative spaces of comfort, family, memory, shared rituals, and desires? How can writing through and about food radically strengthen our communities and open up our creative craft? Along with celebrating and exploring food writing by poets and writers such as Lucille Clifton, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Chen Chen, we will write together inspired by delicious writing prompts. Bring lots of snacks!
