Class Experience

As an activist, my background in writing, poetry, and spoken word has led me to create keynotes, songs, poetry, and essays about environmental justice. I have had numerous creative pieces published as my own form of activism, to draw attention to causes, and to inspire others to act. I am the Poetry Editor of Reckoning: a creative journal of environmental justice and on the board of Cascadia Poetics Lab which produces a bioregional festival focusing on the intersection of poetry and environmentalism.

Students will only need something to write with and on. I prefer they do writing exercises by hand. They can transfer drafts into their computers later. No prior background knowledge is required, however, I have provided links to 2 videos and attached one poem. It's important for our discussion to watch and read these beforehand, as we won't have time class. Thanks!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
When speaking about social or environmental injustice, some of the content may be emotionally upsetting to sensitive students.
