We will be reading and responding directly to the moving poetic words of currently incarcerated poets. We will have a conversation with Free Minds Poet Ambassadors, then transition to independently reading and responding to poetry using an online whiteboard tool. It is a simple and powerful way to support the processes of self-awareness and change, as well as read great writing and meet other volunteers! Together, we will use poetry and storytelling to connect individuals on both sides of the prison walls, and to promote hope and healing through literary art.
Whether you are single, coupled, or something in between, we invite you to participate. No prior knowledge of poetry or writing required.
