The Practice of Poetry is the practice of presence. This is a writing workshop and discussion series for those who’d to use poetry to build a meditative wellness practice. This workshop is perfect for those who have stories to share that they can’t quite find the words for; those who want to establish a continuous, reflective writing practice, and those who have an interest in writing poetry, but feel shy about beginning.
About Daje: Profound Beauty is often found in the tension. Through song and poetry, Daje makes it her mission to seek it out and expose it. As a performer, she pulls cues from favorites, Billie Holiday, Corinne Bailey Rae, serpentwithfeet, and Valerie June, permeating rooms with a vulnerable fusion of poetic rock and soulful ballad. As a poet, she wrote and performed as a part of a collective of performance poets called the 5th Woman (2016 – 2017). She continued to work with the collective as Creative Director, Event Coordinator, writer, contributor and workshop developer with fellowship recipients until 2018. In 2017, She self-published her first collection of poems, On Becoming Gold, in digital and print formats.
