"Free" Creative Writing Workshops at the Center for the Arts & Culture @ SJB for Teens in Brooklyn

On selected Saturdays this October and November from 12 noon - 2 pm, CAC@SJB in association with "The In Progress Group" is inviting all talented community teens with an interest in writing to attend a free Creative Writing Workshop that will be instructed by Luis Bernard, founder of The In Progress Group. Luis Bernard is an extraordinary spoken word artist, community organizer, and educator who has dedicated his life to assisting and mentoring youth by empowering them through the gift of writing, and performing their poetry. Through his dynamic style, and utilization of effective approaches, techniques and exercises, Luis has impacted the lives of many young aspiring spoken word artists, and poets who have partaken in his innovative, and challenging workshops. The fruit of his work has led to the empowerment of a good number of his students, and has led them to living more positive lives, while experiencing their confindence soar to new heights. A number of his most gifted students, along with special invited poets, will be assisting Luis, and will perform some of their poetry at the workshops so attendees can see for themselves what these workshops can do. We at the Center are very happy, and most grateful to have Mr. Luis Bernard share his wisdom, knowledge, and gifts with our youth, and our community here at CAC@SJB. If you know of any talented teens who would have an interest in learning the keys to writing strong poetry, and even performing before an audience.. invite them to attend these dynamic workshops this October and November. The workshops are free, and are open to all teens who are looking for some real positivity in their lives. Luis Bernard is the gifted individual who can bring it!

For more information about these free Creative Writing Workshops, and for all contact info, link into the Center's site at We also encourage you to forward this e-mail to anyone, or group of individuals who may be interested in knowing about the workshops at the Center. Seating is limited, so please, have the teens or their parents contact us as soon as possible.

Personal Note: I performed with the gentleman conducting these workshops and he's good people.

Even if there aren't teens reading this blog maybe they know of a teen who would be interested in such a program. Exactly what age is a disgruntled mami of color?
