FREE | Right 2 Write Poetry Workshop

March 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

Right 2 Write Poetry Workshop
Come and participate in a writing workshop with an experienced writer and performer

About this event

Right 2 Write is a quarterly online writing workshop community facilitated by poet Alex Tha Great. The workshop is a time to connect with others and to learn writing techniques and style. We read two texts, (at times watch one), brainstorm thoughts on analysis, and write to one prompt as well as leave time for sharing. Come and be apart of this growing community. No matter what level or stage you are in your writing experience you are welcome and are sure to gain from it.

About the Facilitator: Alex Tha Great (Given Real Encouragement Amongst Turmoil) is an accomplished speaker, spoken word artist, educator, and diversity, equity, and inclusion trainer. She is the co-founder and host of Random Xpressions, a monthly open mic venue space. A graduate of the University of California, Irvine with a B.A.in African American Studies and Claremont Graduate University with a M.A. in Cultural Studies, she is now in service to others in the field with her scholarship program the Alex Tha Great Award for Black Studies Scholars. Her poems have been published in several journals including The Cookout, Illya’s Honey, The Voices Project, The Legendary, and Linden Avenue. Her one-woman show Passport to Womanhood was awarded Best One Woman Show by the Houston Fringe Festival. She is the author of Sticks and Stones Don’t Break My Bones (2012), Black Souls Dance On Beat (2015) and Everything My Daddy Taught Me (2019) as well as the forthcoming title Weeping in Public Spaces (2022). Her most gracious job is being mother to a vivacious 5-year-old little girl and is balanced by a self-care routine involving peanut M & M’s, prayer, and much needed naps. She lives by the motto: Whatever you do, let it be bold!

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
