Read to Create: A Workshop with Monica Youn and Krystal Tribbett, featuring the poetry of Tracy K. Smith
In this workshop, poet Monica Youn (UCI English) and curator Krystal Tribbett (UCI Libraries) will explore “Declaration,” a short poem by former Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith. How does Smith use a simple technique called erasure to transform a familiar historical document into a compellingly contemporary poem about the world we live in now, and how we got here? And how can you practice this technique yourself, as a tool for self-expression and historical dialogue? Participants will complete the workshop with a poem of their own.
