I'm exhausted and broke, but still happy to get UrbanArtistry started. If you're reading the other posts you see the workshop participants come with various views. This week has been extremely busy. I hope all the poets are finding this a good way to spend their spring break and I look forward to our poetry reading this Sunday, April 3, 2005 at Borders bookstore in Downtown Detroit.

The best events of this week for me has been seeing young poets try new things, like humus and curry chicken! So far, the poets are doing great. Today we discussed the poets handbook from Haki Madhubuti's newest work Run Toward Fear their comments are both insightful and funny. I hope to have clips of our week up on the blogg (as well as pictures) in the near future. So check back with the blogg and write your comments to any of our posts.

Thank you.

I gotta go to bed now because tomorrow it's the Detroit Institute of Arts and writing to get ready for our reading on Sunday.
