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. For more information, visit the Mass Poetry site: http://www.masspoetry.org/umasdop or email email@example.com.
I’m reading at Smith College as part of the celebration to commemorate the seventh year of writing a poem a day to benefit the Center for New Americans literacy programs for immigrants and refugees in Northampton. The reading takes place in Wright Hall at Smith College on Tuesday, December 8 at 7:00 pm. Come join us!
