AP, “Anonymous Poetry,” is a workshop that highlights writing as an art and as a therapeutic exercise. Erika Blackmon, creator of Velvet Poetry, will lead us as we write in our AVA classroom setting surrounded by the “For Your Eyes Only” artwork. At the end of the class, poems will be exchanged and each person will read the words of another, revealing each message anonymously.
