Join poet Ananya Garg for an online Poetry class on Mondays at 5:30 pm PST. Ananya believes that anyone can be a poet, she hopes that this class allows you space to find your own poetic voice. In this poetry class, participants will have the chance to read, discuss, and even write and share poems in a safe and welcoming space. We will read and discuss contemporary poets of color who write about issues affecting our communities today. Ananya will also share opportunities to get involved in the local poetry community.
To celebrate Black History Month, we will be featuring works of different Black poets in February. In this session, we'll be reading some of Britteney Black Rose Kapri's work, a Black woman poet from Chicago. Britteney is a Chicago performance poet and playwright. Currently she is an alumna turned Teaching Artist Fellow at Young Chicago Authors. Her work has been featured in Poetry Magazine, Button Poetry, and many other outlets, and anthologized in The BreakBeat Poets and The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic. She is a contributor to Black Nerd Problems, a Pink Door Retreat Fellow, and a 2015 Rona Jaffe Writers Award Recipient. Her book, Black Queer Hoe, is available from Haymarket Books.
Estelita's Library is a local Black owned bookstore that you could buy the books from if you are interested.
