The Toronto New School of Writing is offering a workshop with Donato Mancini, the author of You Must Work Harder to Write Poetry of Excellence.

Know Your Enemy: Write Them Down — a workshop with Donato Mancini:
In a time when progressive ideals (the desire for racial, gender and economic justice) are under constant attack, it becomes increasingly important for progressively minded people to be well-armed with knowledge. As Lenin once said, voicing Turgenev, “to know your enemy you must go into the enemy’s country.” In this workshop, we will don our poetic hazmat suits and wade, not into the enemy’s country exactly, but into the enemy’s language.

Each participant will be asked to find, in advance, approximately one page’s worth of especially outrageous “conservative” discourse. We will read these samples aloud to each other, then share a little about our internal experiences with offensive discourse. We will talk frankly about how we process such arguments, how they make us feel, how we respond to them.

Price: $40.00
