In this workshop, participants will be introduced to classic and contemporary Puerto Rican poets & poetry as a way to discover new voices and inspire their own. Participants will use the example poems to generate one original piece of their own. This class will follow a pay-what-you-can model in an endeavor to promote accessibility and inclusion for all.

NOTE: In keeping with our mission, to ensure diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, the registration fee for this course is "Pay What You Can." We believe every writer, reader, storyteller, and literary enthusiast who wants to attend a Literary Cleveland course should be able to have that experience. "Pay What You Can" registration allows comfortable, affordable participation for everyone. We have suggested fees--you can pay one of them, or pay what you can. Your participation is the priority for us. We want you to have an opportunity to learn with Literary Cleveland.
