Writing with the Body with Joshua Whitehead
In this workshop we will survey our bodies in hopes of finding stories that may be written on the skin or in the blood. The best stories are written sensually, by which I mean written with all of our senses intact. We will think about the ways in which our bodies have been disowned, disempowered, or dislocated in all of the multifarious ways in which the world asks us to disregard our bodies (i.e. through race, queerness, disability, trauma, gender, sex, sexuality, age etc.) and instead celebrate them as kin, perhaps a writing partner, in thinking about the kinds of narratives singing from within the folds, scars, bends, sagging of our bodies.
