The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame invites high school students to attend a poetry workshop led by National Youth Poet Laureate Patricia Frazier at Little Black Pearl's Carver 47 Cafe. Inspired by the life and work of Gwendolyn Brooks, this workshop provides a unique opportunity for students to express themselves through poetry. It is the second in a series of three youth writing workshops this spring, but the first available to high schoolers. Registration is required, and is limited to 15 students. In order to secure a place, register early. 

Students will:

• Compose their own poems.

• Read their poems to an audience in Gwendolyn Brooks Park.

• See their work published by the CLHOF.

CLHOF plans to create a limited-run print anthology that will be available through Little Black Pearl; the electronic copy will be made available on our website.

This workshop is made possible through a The Chicago Community Trust grant and the participation of Little Black Pearl.
