Teaching artist Joy Jiménez will lead the unique one-hour Zoom sessions starting Monday, June 15.

Teens can also get in on the action with the Map to Poetry workshop, which encourages participants to “creatively deconstruct terms and synthesize summaries to use as the basis of a haiku, poem, or story.” a news”.

Participants in this workshop will need access to drawing paper and materials, as well as a journal and dictionary. Led by art teacher and slam poet Aminah Decé, the 2-hour sessions will take place starting Saturday, June 13.

Both workshops cost $20 per session. Registration for Map to Poetry and Poetry & Collage is available online.
