I know that it’s been a little while since I post about my time at school. My first residency at the school was really inspiring because I was able to learn more about myself as a writer as well as recognized myself as one.
I enjoyed the writers that I met and heard their lectures: Marlon James, Jamel Brinkley, Felice Belle. Also, I have got better with my writing using the structure and form that I learned from my teacher Annie Finch who herself wrote the book about writing poetry.
Even though the next residency is not until January but I will be working with my mentor Felice during that time.
Always remember that if you have a passion for something or want to do something you love, go for it because you will feel excited and happy in the long run.
