Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine is a rich and interesting mix of visual art, poetry, prose, and essay. According to a review in the New York Times, by using these forms, Rankine "creates an intentionally disorienting experience, one that mirrors the experience of racial micro-aggressions her subjects encounter."
In this generative writing workshop, using Citizen as a model, we'll try our hand at creating writing that mixes genre and style, in an attempt to mirror the the subject matter we want to explore.
This workshop is in conjunction with a visual art session at Art Student League on October 21. You don't have to attend both, but it's highly encouraged.
Free and open to the public.
