BWP: All About Love Workshop

READING & WRITING ALL ABOUT LOVE with Alisha Acquaye

Mondays / February 6 – May 8, 2023
6:00 – 8:00 PM (ET) via Zoom

In this book-club style writing workshop, we’ll read and discuss bell hooks’ seminal text, All About Love: New Visions

 

Each chapter presents piercing and insightful questions and anecdotes that deeply inquire into the roles love plays in our lives. hooks inspires us to contemplate how we define “true” love within the spectrum of relationships we have—spiritual, romantic, familial, and social, to name a few. This workshop is for anyone dedicated to the journey of untangling and reconstructing their views on love. First-time and seasoned readers of the book are welcome—although if you do NOT identify as Black we ask that you abstain from signing up. 

 We’ll read roughly a chapter a week (pdfs will be provided) and write to prompts inspired by each chapter’s themes. (6-8 participants)

NOTE: This workshop will not meet on Monday, February 27th

 Registration for this first-come, first-served drop-in workshop will take place weekly—so if you don’t secure a spot one week, don’t worry! Registration will open the following week. The Eventbrite registration link will be posted on our website and sent out through the Black Writers Program newsletter, so make sure you’ve subscribed. Questions?
