I will have the opportunity to meet my favorite poet and an incredible person, Patricia Smith, during my final MFA Residency in January. What a way to end two years of amazingness.
I have a mentor, Erica Dawson, taking me through my final term with so much support and creative influence, that I have risen to places I never thought I’d reach.
I got the first choice for my Thesis second reader, Alan Michael Parker, my first term mentor. He opened so many creative doors for me and helped me embrace my poet self.
I am heading out soon to host for my open mic, First Stop Poetry. It is truly a blessing and a constant source of inspiration.
