“This Machine Kills Fascists”: Writing Political Poems – Sparrow

A poem is a weapon; the question is which way to point it. In “This Machine Kills Fascists,” we will study how the masters fought evil, and we’ll teach the masters a few tricks of our own. It’s time to change the world, one line at a time. (Incidentally, this workshop is open to Republicans and free-market economists.) We will examine the works of Langston Hughes, Yoko Ono, Woody Guthrie, Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, John Greenleaf Whittier, Mahmoud Darwish, and more. And we will write!

Sparrow, author of America: A Prophesy, professor and Presidential candidate, will lead this enclave.

Thursdays At 7PM: 10 Sessions Begin February 12th
