WOMEN ARE POETRY IN MOTION—EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY
February 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This 60-minute writing workshop is designed for adult women to learn more about poetry writing techniques but also to become more intimate with their own personal stories and history. Led by award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones, participants will also come to understand and appreciate the power of poetry to heal, inspire and provide an opportunity for celebration of self, family and community.
“Joy Jones is a trainer, performance poet, playwright and author of several books including Private Lessons: A Book of Meditations for Teachers; Tambourine Moon, which was selected as one of the best books for children by the black caucus of the ALA and featured on the Bernie Mac Show; and Fearless Public Speaking. She has won awards for her writing from the D. C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Colonial Players Promising Playwrights Competition, plus awards from both the D. C. Department of Recreation & Parks and the D. C. Commission on National & Community Service for outstanding community service.”
