• I’m holding workshops at Mass Poetry’s Student Day of Poetry

    On Friday, December 18, Mass Poetry is sponsoring a Student Day of Poetry at UMass Amherst for middle and high school students. Throughout the day, students can engage in generative writing workshops with top poets and educators, enjoy poetry readings, performances, and participate in a student open mic. Featured poets include Martín Espada, Regie Gibson, and Aja Monet. I’m offering two “Exploring Ekphrasis” workshops.
