#NYCPoet (Past, Present, and You)
Led by Erica Fabri
Fridays, April 20th - June 8th @ 4:30-6:30pm
The tradition of being a poet is an ancient and global practice; however, being a New York City poet has always been, and still is, its own rare and magic animal. In this writing workshop we will analyze and discuss powerful examples of poets that lived and wrote in the five boroughs (including Urban Word NYC Youth Poets and Mentors past and present); we will then write our own poems inspired by this city; creating the next generation’s voice of the #NYCPOET.
