What projects and work can you expect from 2019 - 2021?
Readings Before Council
The Poet Laureate acts as a literary ambassador at home and across the country. I will be performing all over, so follow along to keep up on dates and events, including readings to Council and important events (that's @anothernisha everywhere).
Mentorship is a deep-learning opportunity that can catalyze a career. I will mentor 4 individuals in 5-month sessions starting in August 2019. These individuals will work to learn craft and writing, performance, artist management, curation, networking and relationship-building. Sessions:
August 2019 - January 2020
January 2020 - June 2020
July 2020 - December 2020
January 2021 - July 2021
Workshops will be hosted every quarter in a variety of subject areas. Writing workshops: craft, performance, & genre-writing such as micropoety and ekphrastic poetry, and business focuses such as working as a poet, writing grants and literary funding, contracts and curating events, travel and touring.
Poetry Intensive (Fall/Winter)
A curated 7-day online and in-person workshop series meant for generative writing through precise lesson plans, guest lectures and workshops with poets, culminating in a local showcase. The next intensive is in 2021.
