Workshops

I’d love to with you and your organization to put together a workshop for your audience. Scroll down for pictures, lists, and more of previous organizations I’ve worked with. When you’re ready please fill out this Workshop Request.

Examples of poetry craft workshops below:

  • Pieces of Me…And Sometimes Us – Participants will hear, watch and listen to poetry that speaks to positive and negative experiences of self-identities. They will be given prompts to wrestle their own experiences into poems. This workshop will give participants the space to use poetry to make positive changes within themselves and their community.

 

  • Reimagine – Participants will see images that speak to and challenge concepts of manhood/womanhood faced by young men and women of color. These images will be used as prompts to write poems. Poems that narrate and reflect on the “action” of an image to amplify and expand its meaning. This workshop will give participants the space to use poetry to voice their concerns and help write through the process of becoming their authentic self.
