Alejandro Murguía—The Power of Poetry: Focus Your Rage in Your Writing

Starting with the word and advancing to a complete poem, this workshop, taught by San Francisco’s poet laureate Alejandro Murguía, will focus on poetry for our times. Student poets will be encouraged to channel their rage, anger, politics, doubts, insecurities as well as love and compassion into their poetry—with a bit of irony and humor included. If time allows we will workshop the poems in class. Bring two pencils and paper to write with. For poets of all skill and experience levels.

Each Master Class Mixer is limited to just 15 students, lasts for three hours, and concludes with a reception with the author. If you are unable to attend your class, please email info@litquake.org at least seven days prior to receive a refund or credit, minus a $25 service charge.
