Poetry Incubator | Chicago, IL

The Poetry Foundation and Crescendo Literary will host the second annual poetry incubator for emerging poets who engage with community through their creative practice.

Najee Omar will lead a workshop on engaging youth and joins faculty and incubator fellows who spend time developing poetry projects based on their own aspirations and the needs of their communities. This four-day program culminates on Saturday, July 29, with the Chicago Poetry Block Party, a festival of poetry, music, art, and community for audiences of all ages at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
