Crossing Genres
Taught by Avren Keating
Open to 10 LGTBTAIQ+ students and allies, ages 13-18
A three-week workshop
November 15, 22, and December 6
Saturdays, 12-2 PM
In this workshop, teens will explore identity and difference through literary categories, or genres, for three afternoons. In the first afternoon, the class will learn and take apart love poetry's traditions to freshen it up and make it more inclusive. In the second afternoon, we will be experimenting with fiction genres, by taking characters from one setting and exploring with them in a different world, such as a cowgirl in a sci-fi world, or a self-help specialist in a mystery. In doing so, as a class we will explore feelings of otherness. A reading and celebration will take place the last class.
