young authors conference. 

It was such an honor and privilege to once again teach at the Young Authors Conference. This year I presented my new curriculum, ‘Poetry with Purpose’ for 6 days, 3 classes per day – to over 300 young writers. 

I am left amazed and inspired at the many writers who when given the space and encouragement to focus on purposeful and intentional writing let their activism shine. I am even more moved by the wonderful and thoughtful conversations that followed, with many of the young writers promising to make an effort to write with more purpose and intention, focusing on social activism through literature.
