Poesía, no las olvides: voces desde el Caribe mexicano: Xánath Caraza

En este taller hablaremos sobre Veracruz y su conexión con la cultura caribeña. Discutiremos sobre la situación actual de las desaparecidas en México, en especial en Veracruz, el Caribe mexicano, y analizaremos algunos poemas de Lágrima roja que recientemente recibió el primer lugar de los International Latino Book Awards como mejor libro de poesía escrito en español por un autor. Nos enfocaremos en la poesía como documento lírico. En la segunda parte del taller los estudiantes seleccionarán una situación social actual que sea de su interés y escribirán un poema sobre su elección. Terminaremos el taller con una lectura voluntaria y una sesión de preguntas y respuestas
