Annual School Poetry Event Greets New Speakers
We are excited to greet four new poetry and spoken word queens to MMAC’s annual Poetry Days for Mountainair Middle and High School students. Davine Torres, Miriam Sagan, K. Benally, and Letsjusb bring their talents to Mountainair middle and high school classrooms all March 2021.
Organized by Karen Smith, MMAC board member, Young Arts Club director, and owner of Two Ponyz Ranch, the monthlong event is being held both virtually and in-person through English and writing classes.
Parents—ask your kids what’s inspiring them this month and what kind of beats they’re writing in this popular writing event!
Wed, April 7, 2021, 10 am – noon
