In Progress: Poetry of the People with Bonafide Rojas
Monday, April 14, 2014
Bronx poet Bonafide Rojas will lead this poetry writing workshop and will read selections from his new book RENOVATIO.
Bronx Poet Bonafide Rojas Presents “Reinvention Through The Everyday” Poetry Workshop at Bronx Council on the Arts
Bronx native and poet Bonafide Rojas will lead this workshop and combined book presentation for his latest title “RENOVATIO,” from Grand Concourse Press. He will discuss how reinvention and renovation have allowed him to not only survive but to thrive under demanding and challenging circumstances. Bonafide will share his approaches and methods and will share the newest poems created by this alchemical assembling of language. This workshop and combined book presentation will include time for participants to write and share their own original material.
Charlie Vázquez, Director of the Bronx Writers Center, says, “Bonafide Rojas’ work is filled with a variety of emotions and cultural references and it’s been a wonderful experience to collaborate with him, both for this workshop and for the editing of his previous book, When the City Sleeps. It will be of great value to Bronx poets of all levels and styles to see and hear him discuss his writing process and the strategies he employs to construct powerful and passionate imagery through the written word.”
All welcome! Bring a notebook, a pen and your creative energy. Copies of RENOVATIO will also be for sale.
