Writing From Desire & Body with Linh S. Nguyen - The FOLD

Writing From Desire & Body with Linh S. Nguyen

Description

Join children’s author and arts educator Linh S. Nguyễn in her new workshop aimed at writing practices that stem from the body. Her teaching methods rely on pleasure and paying attention to what surfaces unplanned (aligned with adrienne maree brown’s “emergent strategy”). Desire and emergence are treated as entry points to making art, which ensures an accessible space for beginners or those who might not consider themselves writers or artists. As we move through a precarious world, it is important to notice our bodies, entanglements, emotions, and the places where we take root and grow. Knowing that everything is in flux—including our homes and our selves—the most essential skill is to honour what matters in any given moment. Learn to be present and write from wherever you’re at. Participants will be guided through emergent practice, embodiment, and love as a way of knowing (audre lorde) as it relates to creative work. Bring a warm beverage, writing utensils, and coloured pencils, and join us from the comfort of your home.

This session will be closed-captioned. Closed captioning provided by Zoom auto transcription.

This session will be followed by a Q&A.
