Reflection: From a Mentor

Well, well, well… 
Here we are. We are in week 2 – out of 4. Voces 2013 is screaming down the tracks on a beautiful journey of poetry, art, journalism, and creative self-expression. Today, we are meeting with the 2013 ABQ Slam Team. Members of the team are workshopping with small groups of writers – from the Voces program. We are “talking shop.” Poets are meeting poets and figuring out how and why we do what we do – they are being encouraged to: write, edit, memorize, and speak their truths into the world. We have an incredible group of a little more than a dozen young writers who are finding themselves. I am thankful for their presence; when they kick poems, I am thankful for their presents! I hope you all are staying tuned to what are doing. Find us on Facebook: Urban Verbs – on Twitter @Voces2013 and on stage: June 28th at 7pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, in the Bank of America Theatre!
