About the event
During THE POWER OF POETRY IN YOU , award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones will lead teen participants through several writing exercises that help them better understand the structure, language and other aspects of poetry. They also will be guided through a process that helps them realize how poetry is revealed in their own lives and history, enhancing their personal self-esteem and sense of self-worth while eliminating a barrier between them and one of the oldest literary art forms in the world.
Joy Jones is a performance poet, playwright and author of several books including the recently released Jayla Jumps Inc, which is receiving excellent reviews across the country, Private Lessons: A Book of Meditations for Teachers; Tambourine Moon, which was selected as one of the best books for children by the black caucus of the ALA and featured on the Bernie Mac Show; and Fearless Public Speaking. She has won awards for her writing from the D. C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities among other places.
