Monday, October 17, 2022 from 6:00-8:00 PM

Join us for upcoming Midwest Poetics workshop where artists will share work with a peer group led by poet Maritza N. Estrada!
This workshop will be centered around Grief: Lament & Gallop, where participants will engage in reading, writing, hearing, and discussing examples of poetry texts, photography, audio, video, and art. After completing the workshop, attendees will carry with them a sample packet of poems, questions, answers, and resources to assist them in their artistic and/or personal journeys. All walks of life are welcome in the space of abundance, wonder, love, rigor, risk, kindness, healing, and light. Attendees are encouraged to please be courteous of how one enters with grief and may leave holding grief after.  
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!



Maritza Estrada earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Arizona State University, where she served as the 2020 – 2021 Artistic Development and Research Assistant for the Center for Imagination in the Borderlands, created by Natalie Diaz.
