Materclass Poetry Workshop: Jericho Brown
February 13 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Poet Jericho Brown, an American Book Award Winner, will host a masterclass workshop in The Studio leading up to an evening reading event.
“There are countless poets of the body, but the body in Brown’s poetry serves as a nexus of the corporeal and conceptual. The ‘body’ of his work isn’t just a physical, individual one; it’s a stand-in for various (flawed) institutions of power and belief: national history, religion, mythology, the justice system.” —The New York Times
