About the Workshop
Faraway planets, interstellar adventure, villains, heroes, and the seductive ability to transport the self in a quick gold shimmer — this is just some of what comes to mind when considering the lore and legend of Star Trek.
During April 2021, National Poetry Month, poet and educator Emma Trelles and visual artist and musician Beatriz Monteavaro led a 2-hour ekphrastic writing workshop. The mission: to write poems in response to Monteavaro’s original Star Trek illustrations and to have a good time doing it. Designed by Rebekah Monson and Andrea Vigil, For the Love of Khan: Poems for the Future: A Free Zine features the creative writing of all of the Khan poets who joined us in the spirit of community and a shared passion for sci-fi and the Star Trek multiverse.
The class and zine were created in partnership with O, Miami; Knight Foundation; and Letras Latinas at the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame.
