Free and open to the public.

 

This generative writing workshop will focus on language while highlighting the impact of African American Vernacular English in writing and its influence on mainstream culture.

 

This workshop is intended to educate those who are unaware or misinformed about AAVE, and its history and influence in the world around us today. It will encourage writers, especially BIPOC writers, to embrace the language of their experiences and authenticity of their culture. The workshop will also prompt participants to explore poetic elements such as colloquialism, dialect, and vernacular.
