Writing New Worlds: A Multilingual Poetry Workshop

  • Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute 1915 East 22nd Street Minneapolis, MN, 55404 United States (map)

Part two, of a new and beautiful writing and recording workshop. Didn’t make it to part one of the workshop? No problem! You can still join in the fun.

This FREE poetry workshop aims to empower multilingual students to unleash the power of their unique voice and perspective. Students will learn to write, perform, and record poetry in two languages—English and their home language—during this two part workshop. Part one will focus on writing, and in part two students will have the opportunity to record their poetry. This workshop is designed for students in 2nd through 12th grade. Bilingual volunteers who speak Amharic አማርኛ and Somali will be available to help students.
