Multigenre Workshop: Activist Writing

This course explores writing that activates, that calls us to action, and that asks how writing can heal the world. We read and write texts that call and respond, that counteract, that repair and repeal. This involves some field experience: research into what calls us to action, the environment, human rights, war, political rhetoric, drone strikes, gun violence, etc, as well as possible petitioning, marching, and sign-making---in short, random acts of poetic intervention.
