Rethinking the Literary Machine: New Work from The After School at Beyond Baroque
September 22 @ 4:00 pm
The After School is a monthly work space and test platform for writers who are self-identified queers and people of color. Many of us strive to find great writers and writing wherever it may be. However, the landscape of genres, authorship, contests, publication, excludes many types of writing and writers on basis of culture, time, means of production, and economy. Our goal is to to develop writing projects that subvert or repurpose how literature is made and read. This reading/QA session will both demonstrate and discuss what results from challenging exclusionary concepts of authorship, production, and literary legitimacy.
