Miami Poetry Club welcomes storytellers to writing workshops and events (includes video story)

Finding the right place to express emotions, thoughts and experiences leads one to seek help from those closest to us without other perspectives to reach a broader conclusion. What if others could read and listen to our stories without worrying about differences?

Emotions, thoughts and experiences can all be shared through a poem that introduces a world of creativity that is endless when picking up a pencil and writing. To push the idea of becoming a writer, Micah Marie Johnson and Sten Garcia, poets and creatives, decided to start the Miami Poetry Club, a non-profit organization generating writing workshops and events bi-monthly every second and fourth Wednesday of the month.

Covering a plethora of themes everyone is free to share without including controversial topics to create a safe space for expression. Alyssa, an FIU alumni and Miami Poetry Club writer, describes:

“I feel like Miami Poetry Club gathers so many different people, that I hear so many different perspectives and ways of describing things… You know like emotions, or a scenario, or places, and it pushes me to be more innovative with my writing.”

Welcoming everyone, the Miami Poetry Club introduces a top-of-the-line experience for newcomers while extending an arm to anyone with warm welcomes and the freedom to share or just listen.
