Holding Space on the Page Special Edition: Lovecraft Country
Thursday, February 18, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Join creative writers for a session of supported community writing! In this special edition event, we will focus on "Lovecraft Country." The HBO show combines issues of racism with Lovecraftian horror as the main character, Atticus, travels across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his father. Highlighting writing and speeches from James Baldwin, Gil Scott-Heron, and Sonia Sanchez, we will explore "Lovecraft Country" then invite you to reflect, hold space, and write. Writing prompts will encourage you to ask questions and make connections personally, professionally, and creatively. You are also welcome to simply read, reflect, and rest. No experience needed!
