The Tradition Workshop: Teaching a poem to “serve you”
June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
This event is part of One Book, One Philadelphia 2021 centering Jericho Brown’s collection of poems, THE TRADITION.
In this writing workshop led by Andrea Walls, we will do a deep read of Jericho Brown’s title poem from his collection, “The Tradition”.
Starting with the premise that reading and writing poetry is a collaborative and interactive process between reader and writer, we will examine personal lexicons, experiences, and identities as a foundation from which to build an expansive understanding of the text, then engage together in a writing prompt.
No writing experience is needed to participate in this workshop. Andrea Walls is a poet and photographer currently in residence at the Free Library as a Chronicling Resistance Fellow.
Registrants will receive a Zoom event link prior to the workshop.
