2. Writing in the City (presented by writers Renee Simms and Catalina Ocampo)

Who is this workshop for?

Middle school and high school students.

What is this workshop about?

Calling all young urban poets! Join us for a free two-day workshop where we will use the city as inspiration, and write poetry to inspire the city. In this workshop we will learn how to use our senses in order to write rich, compelling poems about the neighborhoods we live in. We’ll also use those poems to think about the things we’d like to change about our city. Taking inspiration from artists like the Guerrilla Girls and Shepard Fairey we will then explore powerful ways of combining words and images in order to bring our ideas back into the streets. You do not need any previous experience writing poetry to join this workshop — only sharp senses, an open mind, and good walking shoes!

When is it?

March 23 and March 30, from 1 – 3 p.m

Where can I find it?

Write@253, 1310 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way

How much will I have to pay?
