Crossing Genres -- CANCELED

(Workshop)

May 10,2014, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ 826 Valencia
Crossing Genres will unfortunately have to be re-scheduled for later this summer due to availability complications. We're confident that we will find a time in late summer/early fall when this exact workshop will thrive, scheduling conflict-free. Apologies for the change, and many thanks for your flexibility!

Taught by Mix Prather
Open to 10 students, ages 13-18
A three-week workshop
Saturdays, 3-5 PM
May 10 – May 24

In this workshop, open to LGTBTAIQ+ and allied teens, we will explore identity and difference through literary categories, or genres, for three afternoons. On the first afternoon, you will be learning and taking apart love poetry's traditions to freshen it up and make it more inclusive. On the second afternoon, you will be experimenting with fiction genres, by taking characters from one setting and exploring them in a different world, such as a cowgirl in a sci-fi world, or a self-help specialist in a mystery. A reading and celebration will take place during the final meeting.

Taller de tres semanas
Sábados, 3-5 pm
Del 10 de mayo al 24 de mayo

En este taller, durante tres días, los adolescentes exploraran la identidad y la diferencia a través de categorías o géneros literarios. En el primer dia, aprenderan y desmontaran tradiciones en la poesía romantica para refrescarlas y hacerlas más inclusivas. En la tarde del segundo día, experimentaran con géneros de ficción, tomando personajes de un lugar y explorar con ellos un mundo diferente, como una vaquera en un mundo de ciencia ficción, o un especialista en autoayuda en un misterio. Una lectura y celebración se llevarán a cabo en la tarde del día siguiente, cuando se dará a conocer el librito!
