"Adding to the Latina tradition, Carmen Gimenez Smith, politically aware and feminist-oriented, focuses on general cultural references rather than a sentimental personal narrative. She speaks of sexual politics and family in a fierce, determined tone voracious in its opinions about freedom and responsibility." - Google Books
This week we will be exploring Milk + Filth by Carmen Gimenez Smith. We will read and discuss selected poems from the book before attempting generative writing exercises based on the text.
You don't have to read Milk + Filth in advance, but it is highly recommended and we'd love to hear your thoughts.
Please bring writing materials and a $3 donation.
Everyone is welcome!
