Poetically Speaking...from Across the Potomac: "Making Writer's Block A Myth"

April 10, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Prince George's County Chapter Zoom Meeting

“Making Writer’s Block A Myth” is a workshop facilitated by Poet Laureate of Alexandria KaNikki Jakarta, who is an Award Winning Poet, Author, & Publisher. The apostrophe indicates ownership, therefore if Writer's Block exists then it belongs to the writer, which means that it doesn't have to. If you're a writer, you've experienced a period in time where the motivation for writing would not manifest, The Making Writer's Block a Myth Workshop will show you how you can use the life and the things around you to manifest into writing. After all, the Writers are the people who document life events. The Writers are the people who make people believe in love and believe in life. So, if life experiences and/or being quarantined has your writing at a standstill, register today to be unblocked and motivated to manifest the writings that you've been waiting to create.

KaNikki Jakarta is the First African American Poet Laureate of Alexandria, Virginia. She is an Award Winning Performance Poet who has toured the US and the UK. KaNikki is the author of three novels, two poetry collections, a memoir, a short story, poetry collection entitled ALABAMA GIRL, VIRGINIA WOMAN and the co-author of THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SELF HEALING VOLUME II.
