In this seminar, we will take a recommendation from Sonia Sanchez: “Poetry is subconscious conversation, it is as much the work of those who understand it and those who make it.” We will continue that conversation and write new poems by pulling inspiration from classic and contemporary LGBTQIA+ poets. This is a safe space. This class is offered in partnership with the Lexington Pride Center and Read With Pride.
Jay McCoy has served the local writing community for years through Carnegie’s Q-Munity LGBTQIA+ reading & writing group, mentoring, teaching classes, and co-hosting open mic series.
This class is suitable for all levels.
The Carnegie Center reserves the right to cancel a class if minimum enrollment is not met. It is best to register early to help our instructors prepare and to ensure the class does not get cancelled. We evaluate registration numbers between 6 and 2 business days before a class starts to decide whether we can hold the class. Classes that do not meet minimum enrollment may be cancelled a minimum of two business days prior to the first class meeting. All participants will be notified by email and will receive full refunds.
