The Poetics of Queer Trauma - creative writing workshop // KUIR* (TQAF)
In our quest of gender-dissenting bodies, we queer people have been very often confronted with many kinds of traumatic experiences, recurrent sources of pain and suffering for us. Still, are these forever cicatrized wounds or could we, somehow, put the scab aside and deep inside them? And what for would we undertake such a journey? To (de)consolidate an identity? Can poetry be, after all, an outcome of our Queer Trauma?
In this 4 hour-long workshop we will adopt techniques of creative writing in order to investigate these questionings from a poetical starting point. Familiarity with writing is not mandatory, whereas an openness towards the group is essential. Our communication will be held in English, however participants are welcome to pursue the writing activities in whichever preferred language.
This workshop has a limit of 8 people. We strongly suggest you to apply through the following form.
