Writing across identity difference is always a fraught endeavor. Yet many of us want to encourage our students to try it with thoughtfulness and care. In this workshop we'll share our classroom experiences with setting up guidelines and expectations. Our goal is to emerge from the workshop with a few models for introducing young writers to the seriousness of writing from the perspective of someone different from themselves. Please come with your anecdotes, ideas, and questions!

Rachel Ann Girty, Zell Fellow, served on the English Department Diversity Committee while she earned her MFA and co-created the Graduate Diversity Allies Initiatives. This year she works as Student Leadership Coordinator for the Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts and mentors undergraduates through the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives.

Hopwood Teaching Roundtable events are primarily intended to support new teachers of undergraduate creative writing, but all are welcome to attend.
