Perfect Pitch: Finding Your Poetic Voice

All Levels | Readers and live audiences connect to poetry through the voice of the poet. Its distinctive characteristics reveal how a poet hears language, a quality that varies based on intonation, syntax, geography, and race and cultural differences. This two-day workshop helps you find your poetic pitch by playing with sounds—spoken and written. Students at all levels and from any poetic practice are welcome.

Nadia Imafidon and Emily Warn

Nadia Imafidon is an unapologetic Nigerian-American spoken word poet who stays hustling. She volunteers at the King County Juvenile Detention Center where she writes poetry with kiddos, and co-hosts The Table Podcast, where she and Isaac Sanders have table conversations about the black, queer, and femme experience living in the PNW. She believes in the power of language and storytelling to build community, and inspire healing and change.

Emily Warn is a writer and teacher who served as founding editor of poetryfoundation.org. Her latest book, Shadow Architect, explores the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Her four other collections are The Leaf Path, The Novice Insomniac, The Book of Esther, and Highway Suite.
