About the event
Joy is a radical thing for the marginalized. Informed by Billy-Ray Belcourt’s writing on queer BIPOC joy, this generative workshop is all about joy and its revolutionary potential. We will discuss contemporary poems centered on queer and trans joy, write two to three pieces of our own, and have the option to share our work. We’ll even talk about the problems with compulsory joy and what to do when writing joy feels impossible. This workshop is based in poetry but welcomes participants of any genre!
