Reading at The Betsy March 7th!

2 Mar

For the past three weeks I’ve been participating in a generative poetry workshop through O, Miami with wonderful poet and human, Mahogany Browne (#blackgirlmagic). The workshop’s focus is “Nature and the Socio-Political Body” and the work being produced by the poets has been outstanding.

If you have an opportunity to workshop with Mahogany Browne— DO IT. It was excellent in so many ways. First of all, she conducts her workshop very professionally, and is an excellent manager of time. She kept us on track and each session included time for two generative prompts, close reading of poems by contemporary poets, and workshop time for feedback on our new poems. Secondly, the themes and topics that she chose to help springboard our poems resonated deeply with us. These were not fluffy and safe topics, but they were well presented and designed to help us draw from the profundities of our own well.

This Thursday, March 7th our workshop is having a finale reading at The Betsy in Miami Beach. I’ll be reading new work!
