"Poetry is a political act because it involves telling the truth."June Jordan

In times of chaos, loss and trauma, people turn to poetry. But, can a writer really act as a witness to another voice? This poetry class will explore the connection between writing and social change. We will read and discuss a wide range of voices, and write poems that reflect on current social topics.

About the Instructor:
Gloria Muñoz earned a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA from the University of South Florida. Her past experiences include teaching college-level creative writing and composition in the US, co-directing outreach programs with nonprofits serving low-income first generation college students and their families and teaching playwriting at an NGO in India. Gloria's writing and translations have been honored by the Estelle J. Zbar Poetry Prize, the Bettye Newman Poetry Award, the New York Summer Writer's Institute Fellowship, the Doris Duke Foundation, and the Think Small to Think Big Artist Grant. Her writing has appeared most recently in Dark Phrases, Acentos Review, The Brooklyn Review, SweetLit, The Best New Poets Anthology and Going Om: Real-Life Stories on and off the Yoga Mat.
