In this seminar, hear Omar discuss his own experiences and approach to writing and performing poetry that has a powerful impact, and offer some pieces of advice for writing new poems. Create new poems and have the opportunity to read them with other participants.

You will learn

  • how words can have power
  • how to get the pen moving
  • how to pluck poetry from unlikely sources
  • how to write in passion and edit in cold blood.

Omar shared his thoughts with us in a Q&A. You can read it on this website.
