Ryka Aoki, a trans performance artist, poet, activist, and English professor, will be leading a writing workshop entitled: “Honey Badger Don’t Care: Writing Without Giving in to Perceptions or Expectations.” It will consist of a discussion followed by a work session to create pieces that defy one’s own perceived niches in Asian American, queer, and literary communities. Participants will be encouraged to read their pieces as part of the later performance. They will also be encouraged to have dinner with Ryka at Collins!
