CoraZones: Masha Shudovich

Sep 24, 2022, 2:00 pm

CoraZones is a reading and writing cipher for the Utah Poetry Slam community. Corazón means heart in Spanish. CoraZones fosters a warm, inclusive space for community members to exercise and strengthen their creativity.

Masha Shukovich will be the host for 9.24.2022.

Dr. Masha Shukovich is a writer, poet, storyteller, folklorist, teacher, and intuitive chef with ancestry and indigenous roots in the Balkans; the Mediterranean; and West, Central, and Northeast Asia (Siberia). She is the mother of Maya and Leela, a demigirl (she/they), a neurodivergent person, and an immigrant from a country that no longer exists.

*Please come prepared with a method of writing, be it a notepad and writing utensil, laptop, cellphone or whatever.*

CoraZones will start at 2pm at Under the Umbrella Bookstore. Each session will begin with a brief introduction, including chosen pronouns, and an emotional health check-in of participants to gauge the energy people are bringing into the room. After the check-in, the host will lead a reading exercise and discussion to teach a literary technique. After the conversation, participants will have time to generate new writing. Time will be provided at the end of the hour for participants to share their newly created work, as well as share poems they are seeking feedback on.
