Our workshop leader Simone White had childcare issues so she was an hour late to our poetry workshop. I arrived a half an hour early and kind of got settled in by the time everybody started flowing in. I did not get a chance to workshop my poem but I plan on reading it at the November 5th Final Reading in addition to two poems I will write using the Poetry Prompt from Simone. I am so happy I got into this poetry workshop. I really felt at home at Cave Canem! This is such a big deal for me. I feel accomplished and happy for myself.

I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer.
