IN WAVES AND WAVES ::: MOVEMENT//MEANING//PRESENCE THROUGH SPACE
A craft writing workshop with Nicole Wallace centering on the possibilities space holds within our writing — through our words, formatting, and language(s) — to expand, disrupt, and transform movement, meaning, and presence. We will consider the ways written work translates into the spoken and vice versa and spend time locating the way our words/work exists in the expanse of space, time, and language.
Nicole Wallace is the author of the chapbook, WAASAMOWIN (IMP, 2019). Most recently, Nicole was the June/July 2020 poetry micro-resident at Running Dog and was a 2019 Poets House Emerging Poets Fellow. They are a member of the Indigenous Kinship Collective and Managing Director of The Poetry Project. Recent work can be read in print in Survivance: Indigenous Poesis Vol. IV Zine and online at Running Dog, A Perfect Vacuum, and LitHub. Originally from Gakaabikaang, located in Minnesota, Nicole is of mixed settler/European ancestry and is a descendent of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe). They currently live and make work on unceded, occupied Canarsee and Lenape territory (Brooklyn, NY).
Office Hours Poetry Workshop provides post-MFA poets access to continued support for manuscript-development and everyday writing. The workshop culminates in a public reading each fall and spring to showcase sizzling new work. We welcome all poets, especially people of color, LGBTQ+, and those who are woman-identified. Our name derives from our side hustle. Many of us are freelance, adjunct instructors, who continue to thrive in the margins of academia.
