First Workshop! Women Poets in India, for IWWG

I’m doing a workshop for the International Women’s Writing Guild on Women Poets in India, as part of their Women’s History Month. Here are the details –

India is the world’s largest democracy, but Indian women are still unequal to men in many respects like freedom and pay. Unique customs like arranged marriages are still popular today. However, more urban Indian women are working, marrying late, choosing to stay childfree. How have India’s women poets written about their culture? We will read contemporary Indian women poets ranging from Tishani Doshi to Arundhati Subramaniam and Rukmini Bhaya Nair. Their poems are about female infanticide, rape, ecofeminism, etc. We will also write, using techniques employed by the poets we read. Participants will share and discuss what resonated with them from the readings.

Here’s the link to join on March 14, 1 PM – 230 PM EST –
