Sacred Voices' Poetry Workshops, allow student writers to experiment with ways of translating their experience of the world into a language and form accessible to others. Over the length of the course, students will engage in informal, in-class writing exercises and discussions of identity, cultural history, social issues, and the sacredness of their voices. Our workshops will not only provide students with the invaluable gift of knowing one's self, history, and cultura through art but also the gift of learning to give and receive thoughtful constructive criticism. At the end of the program, students are invited to perform their poetry at our open mics or events that may be displayed to the general public.
