Emilia Phillips: I Am Trying to Be Marvelous: The Poetics of Body Positivity

The Poetry Society of South Carolina presents I Am Trying to Be Marvelous: The Poetics of Body Positivity, a seminar by Emilia Phillips February 10 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Charleston Library Society. Participants will examine the poetries that have arisen alongside the body positivity movement, paying special attention to poets of color, poets with disabilities, female poets, and LGBTQ+ poets. Through discussion and attendant workshop, participants will discover ways in which they can break down misconceptions and prejudices related to bodies and how to draft their own work to consciously embody body positivity. $10 members; $15 non-members.
