Spoken Word Poetry Workshop

January 20, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-6

Meta Sarmiento is a Filipino poet & rapper from Guam and currently lives in Denver, CO. Meta is a National Poetry Slam semifinalist, a TEDx speaker and winner of Spoken Word for the World 2015. His latest collection of poems, “Tie Your Shoes Kid”, explores themes of cultural identity, love, loss and healing. Join Meta for a workshop exploring poetry as spoken word, and to craft your own verse, and find your poetic voice.

Meta will be performing at the Poetry Slam at The Temporary in Willits Center the night before. See him there first, then come and work with him in our poetry workshop the next morning.
