ONLINE: What Can a Woman Say? Exploring Gender in Poetry

ONLINE: What Can a Woman Say? Exploring Gender in Poetry

In this workshop, local poet and writing instructor Emily K. Michael reads from her new book Neoteny: Poems and invites students to explore the rich network of women’s experiences that lead to poems. Too often, the events that celebrate women only focus on domestic nightmares and large-scale tragedies, but this workshop will invite students to consider what a woman can say and how gender works in poetry. A century ago, Virginia Woolf looked to a golden age of literary women, where their gifts would be “trained and strengthened.” So we will ask, what do we expect of women poets? And what can poetry show us about gender, love, tender feelings, intellect, and sensory experience?

Due to campus closures, this event will take place online in Zoom.
