In the above Def Jam Poetry clip, Shihan uses poetry to protest everything he’s “Sick & Tired” about and boy, do watch out for that R-rated language!

It’s time to stop reading what others have produced and put pen to paper ourselves. In this workshop we’ll use writing to clarify our goals and priorities for ourselves and help us articulate those goals to others. We’ll practice working with different techniques and tools and we’ll explore some styles and options beyond what first comes to our minds when we think of poetry or prose.
If you did not attend the first installment of Poetry as Protest or don’t consider yourself a writer you are still encouraged to come and benefit from what will be a challenging, unique, and fun event. Please bring something to write with and something to write on!
This event is co-sponsored by Pardes and latkes and sufganiyot will be served in honor of Channukah.
