  • Poet Speaks Workshop

Hugo House welcomes Amanda Eke, Nigerian American Broadcast Journalist/Anchor, Artist, Spoken Word Poet, Film-Maker, and Educator, to the main stage as part of her touring workshop series, "The Poet Speaks.”

This workshop invites audiences to learn from and engage with Nigerian and Igbo oral traditions of rhyme and verse. Amanda will guide participants to explore and incorporate these lessons, as well as principles of contemporary spoken word culture, into their own poetry, spoken word, and rhyme craft.

Learn more about Amanda Eke, as well as her podcast of the same name, "The Poet Speaks", here.
