Participants will get to work with incredible poets like: Carvens Lissaint, Shira Erlichman, Crystal Valentine, and Steven Willis. In addition to working on their craft, participants will build community with one another and investigate what it means to be a young person in New York City, as well as what joy and celebration mean in an era fraught with political terror and danger. This camp is perfect for any teenager interested in being a part of the more vibrant creative community in New York City.
