It’s quite cool that I get to create and share with everyone during this time. I am an artist, educator and organizer. Those parts of my being are in sort of a state of flux right now. Some days, I’m locked in and creating like a madman. On other days, my time is spent unsuccessfully reading scientific reports and eating absolutely everything.
With that being said, I’m glad I’m able to connect with an institution such as the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts to provide a few tutorials on creating a poem. They aren’t heavy, college-level poetry workshops. It’s just a simple guide to have some fun with words.
