I've Got a Story to Tell
The Power of Your Own Narrative - In this writing workshop, we explore what makes YOU unique. We will delve into the people, things, and moments that have shaped you to become the person you are today. In this workshop, you will find, rediscover, and reaffirm the power that lies in telling your own story.

You Are Who You Say You Are
In this writing workshop, we will delve into the power that you already possess within your inner-self. We will work to identify the root of any feelings of inadequacy and imposter syndrome that you may be experiencing while using poetry as a tool to define who you truly are.

A Pen For the People
Utilizing Poetry as a Tool for Activism: Art is never JUST art. Toni Cade Bambara once stated that "the role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible." In this writing workshop, we will get our hands dirty. The purpose of this workshop is to engage writers as we will question the status quo, raise our critical thinking, and use our art as a means to push for the changes that are necessary to make our communities and this world a better place.
