This is one of five neighborhood workshops held with different teaching artists that will inspire the creation of a neighborhood poem. A final reading and presentation of the poems will take place on Wednesday, April 11 at the Arlington Hills Community Center.

Rodrigo Sanchez-Chavarria’s workshop will use writing prompts to explore ideas of community and neighborhood identity. Participants of all writing ability and experience are welcome.

Sanchez-Chavarria is a writer and spoken word poet of Peruvian heritage involved with Palabristas, a Minnesota-based [email protected] poets collective. He is an MFA student at Hamline University and writes about fatherhood, the duality of two cultures in English, Spanglish, and Spanish, and issues pertaining to his community.
