How to be an Antiracist Writer- Summer 2022

Whether you are a White writer who wants to use diverse characters in your work, or you’re a Black writer who wants to decenter whiteness
in your work, this 6 week, half generative, half workshop class will have something for you. Based on Ibram X Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist, this class will be a safe space for writers, in a no-shame and positive environment. A Black writer and a White writer will serve as workshop facilitators.

Claudia Love Mair is a writing teacher and the Coordinator for the Kentucky Black Writer’s Collaborative. She holds an MFA from Spalding University. A writing teacher for over 20 years, Elizabeth Burton holds an MFA from Spalding University, is widely published in both fiction and nonfiction in literary journals and anthologies, and is currently getting to know the characters in her novel-in-progress.

This class is suitable for all levels.
