Through an in-class exercises, as well as a discussion of your poem, story, or nonfiction piece, we will explore the core essentials of writing  clear, meaningful, and internationally engaged work.  The workshop will also deal with the special demands that face those of us who have survived trauma and have gone on to write about it.  Finally, we will use the last part of the workshop to discuss and highlight, through illustration of our process, the art of translation with regard to Vietnamese and American poetry.
