It has been a busy and productive summer for yours truly! Just wanted to post some of the wonderful writing things that have happened and that are upcoming for me in the next few months.
In July I was invited back to the A-WOW International Girl’s Leadership Initiative Summit as a featured poet, a wonderful program that I first participated in in July 2013. I got to share my poetry with a group of young women from around the globe at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX alongside some other brilliant writer-women!
Some of my poetry was also published in Black Earth Institute’s About Place Journal and in Sixfold Journal this summer!
Next up I will be featuring at some local venues in Washington, DC including Busboys & Poets in September and at An August Occasion: A National Conference on the Life and Legacy of August Wilson to be held at Howard University October 6-8, 2016. I am also in the planning stages of hosting an open mic night with a DC-based young adult mixer network. Details are forthcoming, so stay tuned!
