The event is free and online this year (via Zoom), but you need to register. You can register here.
As discussed in class, this is an optional event, but I strongly encourage you to attend if you can and to share what you’ve learned with the class. We’ll be discussing more about the event and Staceyann Chin’s work next week when we meet again after Spring Break. In the meantime, you can learn more about her and the event on the Literary Arts Festival website.
If you attend & blog in response by (start of class) on Th 4/15, you will get extra credit (yay!). This extra credit will replace a missing blog if you missed some blogs, or it will count as extra credit if already you did all of your blogs (bonus points). Please note that there are only two grades for this extra credit blog: 100 and 0. If you attend the event and blog your responses/reflections thoughtfully and comprehensively, you will receive 100% (otherwise, you will receive no credit).
Don’t forget to take notes at the event, so you can include concrete details in your blog. Please categorize your blog as “Literary Arts Festival.”
Hope to see you there 🙂
