Thank you to everyone that made it out to our fourth and final poetry workshop of the year, "Navigating Memory". We couldn't have asked for a better ending with better people. Peace signs up, this is just the beginning.
Harlingen. Mission. Weslaco. San Juan. San Benito. La Feria. Roma. Rio Grande City. McAllen. Alton. Edinburg. All under one roof. Poetry did that, borderlands did that, community did that. Thank you to Grind Coffee Co. for hosting us and being more than a coffee shop. A true hub for the community to relax, recharge, build, organize, learn and create together. All while sippin' some of the best cafecito in the 956.
Thank you to our guest facilitator Bianca Alyssa Perez for leading our workshop with so much love and care. Thank you for loving our people and writing about us. Valley poets do it better. Women do it better. Be sure to check out her poetry if you haven't already. Stay tuned for the grande finale to our four-part workshop series. Join us on October 22nd as we host our first Spoken Word Poetry Festival in Edinburg, TX.
