At Our Grandmothers' Feet: A Women's History Month Celebration Of Our Stories

Join Kitchen Table Literary Arts as we celebrate Women's History Month! We are presenting a special workshop, At Our Grandmothers' Feet: Our Lives and How We Live Them! This reading and creative writing workshop offers a stand-alone class to introduce participants to the work of elder and ancestor women writers of color. The session focuses on critical analysis of short stories by Dorothy West, Mary Elizabeth Vroman, Alice Childress, and Gwendolyn Brooks. Our coursework includes biographical background of the writer, social context for work, and writing techniques evident in the language and composition of the selected reading. Part-lecture series, part-creative writing workshop, participants are encouraged to approach the course as an opportunity to discover and re-discover the work of our legendary elder and ancestor women of color authors as well as a chance to craft their own creative stories, reflective narrative responses, and self-exploratory writings. Since it is a morning workshop, we will provide light refreshments to help us greet the day! This workshop is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Please share the event widely, and feel free to visit us on the web at www.kitchen-table.org!
