Have you met our main mama of the Emakume Children's Den? Jennifer is an invaluable gift to the Emakume sisterhood, sitting on the Emakume council, running the childrens area at the 2017 gathering, AND she'll be presenting a workshop this year called "Finding your inner Poetess" We're so excited for Jennifer to guide us in finding out poetic voices, as she is a professional writer, poet, English teacher, and published author. Follow her @jennifermelekozgur to stay up to date on her creative endevours and ways in which she brings her light to the world.
Jennifer's workshop description: A creative workshop that will tap into your repressed expressive energy and convert it into verse. Jennifer will guide participants on a journey of reflection and support them as they find words that capture where they are, where they come from, and where they are going. Themes explored may include, but are not limited to: Identity, Pain/Oppression, Joy/Celebration, Love of Self, and Realization. Possible forms introduced are rhymed and free verse and found poetry. Participants will leave with the tools and resources to continue on their poetic path. While Jennifer has developed a set curriculum, she will also take into consideration the skills and desires of the group in order to have an organic, authentic and unique, and meaningful experience.
