#SOULSPEAK POETRY WORKSHOPS: ART AS ACTIVISM SERIES (via Zoom)
RECOMMENDED AS A COMPLETE SERIES, BUT IF YOU CHOOSE AN INDIVIDUAL WORKSHOP, BE SURE TO SPECIFY YOUR SELECTION.
In these writing workshops, Gina uses curated slides with writing prompts, creative tips and insightful resources to help students hone the practice of self-empowerment through courageously using their voices. Students write, share, and receive feedback in real time. No experience is necessary for these supportive and judgement-free workshops. Through sharing her own poetry and process, Gina encourages students to anchor their voices, walk in their power, and contribute to their communities through transformative, activism-driven poetry. Register for all three as a series, or select workshops individually.
