WHEN YOUR POET SPEAKS


This is a workshop that will be focused on how we can use poetry as a means for healing and empowering ourselves. Socrates states that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” we will thus use the tools of poetry to examine our day to day life and partake in the revolutionary act of speaking our own truths to continue shaping the world into the one we all deserve.
