Woosh Kinaadeiyí hosts spoken word workshop

On Jan. 15, from 1-4 p.m. at the Mendenhall Valley Public Library, Woosh Kinaadeiyí will host a Spoken Word Workshop themed around poetry. The workshop will be led by local poets and Woosh Kinaadeiyí board members Christy NaMee Eriksen of Kindred Post and Dee DeRego.

“This will be one of the friendliest, most welcoming and supportive writing workshops you could participate in,” said Bill Merk, poet and Woosh Kinaadeiyí vice president.

Woosh Kinaadeiyí is a nonprofit organization committed to diversity, inclusive community, and empowering voice, and organizes these free to low cost monthly events for the community.

The admission fee to take the workshop is a sliding scale of $10-25 (pay as you can), but if you are unable to financially contribute, send Woosh Kinaadeiyí an email at juneaupoetryslam@gmail.com or message Woosh Kinaadeiyí on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/wooshpoetry, to discuss other ways to contribute.
