About the event
Taught, by Em Fullenwider, this workshop will dive into confessional poetry and how it works. We will be looking at specific poems on a woman’s body that show it in the way media refuses to acknowledge or present praise or kindness towards. We will look at poets who are well known for being women who write about their own body or other women’s bodies in a striking way. Then discuss how the form of a confessional poem relates and blooms this topic. Some of the poets in discussion: Sharon Olds, Lucille Clifton, Anne Sexton, etc.
