Radically Tender with Ariana Brown

Embracing our own softness can feel impossible in a world which tells us we must develop hardness in order to survive. How can we allow ourselves find the power in tenderness, in softness? This workshop explores the capabilities of tenderness, focusing on self-care and communal care, through writing exercise and dialogue and will be facilitated by Ariana Brown. 

Ariana Brown is a Black Mexican American poet from San Antonio, Texas, with a B.A. in African Diaspora Studies and Mexican American Studies. She is the recipient of two Academy of American Poets Prizes and a 2014 collegiate national poetry slam champion. Ariana, who has been dubbed a "part-time curandera," is primarily interested in using poetry to validate black girl rage in all its miraculous forms. She is currently earning an MFA in Poetry at the University of Pittsburgh. Follow her on work at www.arianabrown.com and on Twitter & Instagram @arianathepoet.
