Monday, November 28, 2022 from 6:00-8:00 PM

Join us for upcoming Midwest Poetics writing workshop where artists will share songwriting techniques with a peer group led by Hadiza. and Jade Green.

This workshop will intentionally avoid genre distinctions and maintain focus on exploring the contents of a lyric located inside a song. Hadiza. will give participants a peek under the hood of her own songwriting process to offer another perspective and approach for participants to use for their own writing processes. 

Jade Green will lead the workshop segment, LEANING INTO IT: Music aka Time as Ritual. This portion of the workshop will cover two or more songwriting techniques – active and passive – and tips and tricks to help you fight for what you write.


Midwest Poetics is an opportunity for artists to make space, celebrate and connect with the many voices that make the music and performance scenes that thrive in the Midwest. We want to give the mic to Black, and Indigenous vocalists, poets, writers, musicians and performers of color to celebrate their craft. Midwest Poetics is a space for us all where we will, both workshop new material in a peer-to-peer setting. Workshops will lead up to a quarterly showcase where artists will be encouraged to share what they’ve workshopped!

Hadiza. is a timeline jumper (or an artist) known in various spaces as a singer, songwriter and purveyor of Diaspora Gothic, 1/2 of Collidescope, composer and dancer. She is currently using her time as a Charlotte Street Studio Resident to weave a solid and long enough pathway to give her the space to jump into the timeline in which she has already figured out her way of weaving together all of the above. 




Jade Green is a generative Afro-Indigenous musician and educator in Kansas City.
