Join us for a poetry workshop with Truong Tran, author of book of the other: small in comparison, released by Kaya Press in November 2021. This collection was described by Bhanu Kapil as, “a deeply moving book of poetry that exists beyond the domain of a purely literary experience. Because: How do you survive what’s not meant to be survivable? This is not a manual. It’s a memory. It’s a way through.”

What does it mean to be a writer in this time? What does it mean to be a person of color? What is the role of writing? What is its responsibility? 

How do we write beyond the performance of anger and of otherness? How do we break the conventions of craft as forged by the consciousness of white? 

This is the work. We will do this work together in this poetry workshop. This is the rage, that rage is the beginning of our writing. This is a writing workshop. It does not have to be angry but it will not temper, it will not contain, it will not perform its anger.

// NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY //

This workshop will be captioned. For access needs please e-mail tle@aaww.org.

Truong Tran is a writer, visual artist and teacher. His latest work, book of the other is currently alive even as external forces are trying to silence its voicing in the world. This will not happen. Not ever again.
