Read: Georgia Jackson’s “Peaches,” Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali’s “The Banshee Behind Beamon’s Bakery,” (Links to an external site.) and Colleen Kolba’s “Womb” (Links to an external site.)
Write: A creative response to your favorite piece read for homework. Your response should be your own genre (sci-fi/fantasy/magical realism/absurdism) story of 200 or more words that attempts to detail a theme or feeling that’s difficult to name through the lens of an impossible (or at least highly improbable) reality. Obviously, see the stories above for examples of how to do so, but you may also think of other works you’ve read that you feel fall into one or more of these categories. Then, write a 50 words or more meta paragraph that describes why you chose the impossibility(/ies) that you chose.
