An exploration of poetry from underrepresented cultures/identities -- this includes poets outside of the mainstream categories such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, etc. (e.g. LGBTQ, women, African American, Native American, etc.) -- who are all currently working. Poets will include Richard Blanco, Ocean Vuong, Joy Harjo, Paul Guest, Jamaal May, Danez Smith, and Solmaz Sharif. We will also do some writing of our own, based on the work we read.
