A Workshop for Immigrant & Refugee Poets with Carolina Ebeid

Primary tabs

VHS tapes, recipes, birth and immunization records, letters, heirlooms, passports, a shoebox of photographs — these are among the tangible artifacts that make up the family archive. Amid the tangible, we recognize the intangible and ephemeral matter, such as oral histories, songs, missing records, objects lost in migration now only filed in memory.

How do we open a creative space for these often undervalued inventories?

In this generative workshop, we will consider this question by engaging the work of multimedia writers such as Mary-Kim Arnold and Dianna Khoi Nguyen, and by experimenting with the familial materials that we’ve gathered, how to bring these documents and objects into our writing, and how to write into that empty gaps of what’s absent from the archive.”
