Shakespeare's Sisters: Say Her Name - Poetry Writing Workshop

Shakespeare's Sisters: Say Her Name explores the poetry of Black women in America. This virtual seminar and writing workshop for adults begins a new session exploring poets such as June Jordan, Ai, Lucille Clifton, Rita Dove, Tracy K. Smith and others. From the Black Arts Movement to Cave Canem to recent Poet Laureates, these poets speak to the contemporary moment with many still alive and producing work.

This poetry workshop, led by poet and Folger Poetry Coordinator Teri Cross Davis and poet and author Kim Roberts, will encourage workshop participants to write responses to the poetry that is studied.  The workshop will culminate with a reading of the work that has been created.

Dates for the 2022-23 season have not yet been announced.
