Unlocking the Poet Within: A Workshop for Teens with Jennifer Clark
Registration is now open for this workshop (below). There are 16 seats available (limit 30 seats).
Poetry transports us to places we can’t get to on our own. In this workshop, youth will explore the
power of poetry through a variety of fun, hands-on activities. By making a jigsaw poem, creating a
group poem, crafting their own poem and having the opportunity to read their poetry aloud,
participants will taste the power of poetry.
Appropriate for: Youth, age 11+ interested in exploring poetry and adults who wish to dip into the
poetry pond for the first time.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
Bio: Clark’s book of poems, Necessary Clearings, was published in 2014 by Shabda Press. She’s taught
seventh graders and high school students and facilitated parent/child poetry workshops in the
Pittsburgh Public Schools. She’s been a guest poetry lecturer in Allegheny Community College,
University of Pittsburgh, Western Michigan University, and Kalamazoo Public Schools and developed
creative writing workshops for children and adults in homeless shelters, jails, mental health facilities,
churches, and neighborhood centers through Communities In Schools.
