Native American Youth Poetry Workshop
In this series, we will deepen our relationship with place, identity, and community through the act of writing and the experience of poetry. This workshop is open to Native American, American Indian, First Nation, Indigenous identified high school age youth (grades 9 - 12). This 16-week program will culminate in a published book by Nomadic Press. This publication will center on student writings produced within the workshop. Students will experience from start to finish the creative process of poetry and will engage in peer-to-peer revision and mentor-supported edits on work before publication.
All youth who identify as Native American, American Indian, First Nations and or Indigenous are encouraged to participate.
