Everyone has a poem in them. Never written a poem? Have a notebook full of poems to share? Our visiting poet, Brittany Rogers, will help you discover your writing talents with word games and other creative exercises. Teens are encouraged (but not required) to share their poems at the workshop.
Brittany Rogers is a poet, mother, educator, and Hufflepuff Head of House; She is a reader for Muzzle Magazine, and has work published in Vinyl Poetry and Prose, Freezeray Poetry, Tinderbox Poetry, and The BreakBeat Poets: Black Girl Magic Anthology. Brittany has been nominated for Best New Poets and a Pushcart Prize, and is also a fellow of VONA/ Voices, The Watering Hole and Pink Door Writing Retreat.
We’ll also have snacks & beverages to celebrate National Poetry Month.
