Wednesdays on the Stoop: Chikaonda
November 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Wednesdays On the Stoop, a series of free programming by Blue Stoop on Zoom every Wednesday from 4 pm – 5 pm. The sessions are designed to be a constant structure–every Wednesday at 4 you can count on Blue Stoop to plug you into your writing energy with an informal and supportive space.
What are our obligations as writers and artists in times of social and political upheaval? For this Wednesdays On The Stoop session we will read some essay excerpts by writers discussing what it means to write in times of societal trouble; we will then spend some time doing our own writing about the moment we are currently in, and then will come back and discuss what we wrote about and why, time permitting.
Michelle Chikaonda is a narrative nonfiction writer and essayist from Blantyre, Malawi, currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has been published at Al Jazeera, the Globe and Mail, Catapult, the Kalahari Review, and Electric Literature, among others.
