Join Simone John, poet, educator, and freelance writer for a workshop on Saturday, April 28, at Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Simone John has devised youth poetry workshops that explore hip hop culture and poetry as a form of protest and was part of the POETS RESIST event in Montpelier last November. Bring a passionate issue to write about for this workshop or a news headline or article to use as part of documentary poetics. If possible, bring a laptop or mobile device for research.
Simone John’s poetry and essays have been published online and in print in The Pitkin Review, The Writer in the World, and the Elohi Gadugi Journal. Her first full-length poetry collection, Testify, is available from Octopus Books. Workshop is limited to 12 participants.
10 am-noon | Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street
