Teen Writing Workshop w/ Miami Book Fair

Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of facilitating a teen writing workshop sponsored by the Miami Book Fair. The Miami Book Fair is one of the more well-respected events of its kind in the nation. Beyond the amazing event that happens in November, numerous workshops and community events are held throughout the year under the Miami Book Fair banner.

My workshop featured some talented teens who were excited about the opportunity to spend their Saturday morning writing poetry. We focused on the power that an individual’s story has and the necessity that a poet, or any artist, is intentional about using their own authentic story to speak volumes. In the few hours we had, these poets¬†started on the journey of creating some extremely in-depth work, and I look forward to working with them in the future.

South Florida Book Fair

And the Walls Came Tumbling hit the shelves in January. Six months later, I am a featured poet/author at the South Florida Book Festival.

The festival, being held at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (2650 Sistrunk Boulevard, Ft. Lauderdale 33311) – July 19th and 20th, has invited me to be a part of their 8th annual event that will feature authors from around the country.

On Saturday, July 20th, I’ll have a short reading from 2:30-2:45, followed by a panel discussion in the gallery. Books will be on sale all day.
