Raise Your Voice: Poetry Workshop with Glenis Redmond

Raise Your Voice: Poetry Workshop with Glenis Redmond

Wed, February 3, at 6:30pm-8:30pm ET

Since 2009, State Theatre New Jersey Poet-in-Residence Glenis Redmond has brought poetry into the lives of people all over the Garden State—among them students, senior citizens, and members of the general public. Her experiences and the people she has met have inspired a number of her poems, including "Bruised," featured in her TEDxGreenville Talk and "Dancers," dedicated to Norma Heflin, a kindred spirit Glenis met at Quail Brook Senior Center in Somerset. Now, in the "Raise Your Voice" free poetry workshop focusing on social justice, you can learn some of the techniques she uses for writing her well-crafted and deeply personal poems. Through her workshops, she encourages participants to draw upon their own lives and experiences to tell their own stories. This Zoom workshop is open to the general public (must be 18+) and is FREE of charge. No previous writing experience needed. All levels welcome.
