In partnership with our Premiere Artist Partner, Furious Flower Poetry Center, Harrisonburg City Public School students at Skyline and Thomas Harrison Middle Schools participated in a poetry workshop with Sudanese-American poet, Safia Elhillo. After reading her poetry, Safia led the students in a generative writing session where they created a poem based on prompts, questions, and descriptions about things, places, people, and moments that feel like home. At the end of the workshop, students were encouraged to share their work with the group. Supported by peers, a few brave students found their creative voice.
