Writespace is dedicated to celebrating Houston’s diversity. We hope each quarter of 2021 to provide classes that help writers who may not always feel heard find their voice in the written word. In the first quarter of 2021, Amal Kassir, an award-winning spoken word poet, will teach others how to express their experience through the magic of the written word. In this three-hour workshop, Amal will look at Middle Eastern diaspora poets in the world and compare them to modern poets of Arabia, and teach participants how to evaluate and critique the Arab American voice in mainstream media. Participants will reflect on some major trends and movements in Middle Eastern literature and tap into how to write about their own experiences.
