How can writing about food open up evocative spaces of comfort, family, ancestral lineage, memory, shared rituals, and desires? How can writing through and about food strengthen our communities and open up our creative craft? Along with celebrating and exploring food writing by poets such Naomi Shihab Nye, Audre Lorde, Chen Chen, and Lucille Clifton, this class will offer numerous delicious writing prompts and opportunities for feedback, connection, and sharing.

Plus, we’re holding a special Q&A with Jane Wong and you’ve got until May 10 to get your questions in!
