“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.” Frida Kahlo’s ethos echoes two seemingly contradictory pieces of writerly advice: "Write what you know." "Write what you want to know." To honor Kahlo on her day of birth (July 6) and her day of death (July 13), we will explore her self-portraits to create verse and prose that freshly capture our lives as we understand them, and reveal what we don’t know about ourselves, whether we want to know or not!
NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
