The Writers' Circle is expanding! In our inaugural episode Khaliah is joined by friends and fellow artists YOSHiSUHN, Gabrielle Clark and Lenora Elaine, to discuss how we're navigating the craziness of 2020. From pandemics to protests we explore our feelings and philosophies through poetry, taking lead from our ancestor Nina Simone, doing the artist's duty and reflecting the times. Grab your notebook, pen and join in! Remember, the prompt is just a suggestion.
