Join Magdalena to create a new poem, discuss craft, and to receive feedback and inspiration. With two decades of experience facilitating poetry writing workshops Magdalena can help you contact or reconnect with your muse—the voice inside you that wants to create, to nourish your soul, and each other. We meet and write in community to bear witness to, advocate for, and go deeper to the place where poetry heals.

After reading Sartre and Beauvoir, we became interested in black existentialism and phenomenology. We’ve been exploring Frantz Fanon and James Baldwin, and now we’re going to read an essay by Kathryn Gines that was published in Convergences: Black Feminism and Continental Philosophy: “Sartre, Beauvoir, and the Gender/Race Analogy: The Case for Black Feminist Philosophy”.
