Writing Across the Rainbow is a class that provides the participants a unique opportunity to work with multiple writers in creating their own story. A different queer writer will be brought in each week to co-facilitate and add trust to the class.
Week One will focus on the art of haiku and poetry writing using published examples as templates to write original works. Each participant will write their poems during class to various prompts, and we will read the poems to each other with great affirmation.
Week Two will be on flash fiction and short stories using published examples as a template to their original work. We will begin with the writing prompt: Write about your scariest experience as a queer person or tell us about your happiest experience as a queer person. We will end with readings and affirmations.
Week Three will include creating a soul collage together and then using it as a writing prompt and sharing it with the class.
