Missives: A Poetry Craft Class @ Online

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting prose and poetry in Queens, is offering free creative writing classes ONLINE through the summer.

Our next virtual workshop will be led by Safia Jama on Saturday, August 8th from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m:

“Missives: A Poetry Craft Class”

Poems can be written, and read, as letters. The epistolary form is one way to put it, yes, but the sound of the term “missives” holds and delivers a certain longing to the ear. Something is unresolved that needs our attention. There is the hope of a response, but no guarantees. We’ll read letter-poems while employing the letter form as a lens for reading work that is both urgent and thrilling in its plea for a reply. We’ll read work by Emily Dickinson, Lucille Clifton, and Rhina P. Espaillat and then dive into some writing exercises. Expect to leave with a prompt: a letter, unwritten.

Safia Jama was born to a Somali father and an Irish American mother in Queens. A Cave Canem graduate fellow, she has published poetry in Ploughshares, RHINO, Cagibi, Boston Review, Spoken Black Girl, and No Dear. Her poetry has also been featured on WNYC’s Morning Edition and CUNY TV’s Shades of US series. Jama was a semifinalist in the Pleiades Press Editors Prize for Poetry and she is the author of Notes on Resilience included in the New-Generation African Poets chapbook box set, an African Poetry Book Fund project, edited by Kwame Dawes and Chris Abani, released through Akashic Books (2020).

This program is made possible with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
