Program Description

Event Details

This is the first session in a three-part poetry series that addresses the cycles of gentrification and the harm it causes in our communities. This session is led by featured poet Asia Dorsey. We will examine what Denver once was and what ashes are in the fire. We will use poetry writing techniques that focus on finding beauty in what remains. The session will be followed by an optional reading of participants work.
