A New Woman Warrior: Poetry Intensive with Joan Kwon Glass

Power, Grief & Identity in a
Post-Roe v. Wade World

**Please note all times are listed in EST**  

In her essential feminist book The Woman Warrior, Maxine Hong Kingston expertly incorporates persona, Chinese folklore imagery & Chinese American experiences to build new notions of a “woman warrior.” As we face life and society as women after the reversal of Roe v. Wade, how do we write our own journeys of empowerment and loss? In this generative workshop, we will study poems written by other women about our bodies and identities, motherhood and womanhood. Using prompts inspired by The Woman Warrior and readings of work by Anne Sexton, Dorothy Chan, Lucille Clifton, Allison Blevins, Warsan Shire, Sylvia Plath & Emily Jungmin Yoon, we will write ourselves into the future and into ourselves.

Joan Kwon Glass is the Korean American author of NIGHT SWIM (2022), winner of the Diode Editions Book Contest.
