Gracias for the past week of quiet space to study the craft of writing poetry, revising poems, and begin a short story.
Gracias for the wonderful opportunity to be a part of the evening poetry workshop at Sturgeon Bay High School (SBHS) entitled “Poemas de Aqui y de Alla” with 12 Latinx high school students who wrote original poems or read those of others.
Gracias to Write On staff and board, SBHS staff, and Literacy Door County for collaborating to create new space, safe space, for the students to examine cultural identity and cultural resiliency through poetry.
