This three-hour poetry workshop is just for teens. Kick off your fall season with considering and reconsidering when and how (and what even is) form when writing and performing your poetry.

Cecily Schuler is a genderqueer writer and spoken word artist, raised and based in South Florida. Their work is featured in Jai Alai Magazine, Winter Tangerine, the Offing, great weather for MEDIA and elsewhere. Cecily received their MFA in Writing from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, and has attended residencies at Breadloaf Writers’ Conference, the Home School: Miami, and the Vermont Studio Center. They are the winner of the Inaugural National Poetry Month Online Slam (2018), the 2016 Vox Pop Individual Slam Champion, and have repped and coached teams for Seattle and New York City. As a 2017 Brooklyn Poets Fellow, Cecily is currently working on a full-length experimental poetic memoir. Their first chapbook, 296, is available on Next Left Press.
