Poetry for the People 25th Anniversary April 26-28! Featuring Chinaka Hodge, Ghostlines, Manjula Martin, Kima Jones!

Join us for three free nights of celebration at UC Berkeley’s Poetry for the People, including featured readings by P4P students, Chinaka Hodge & Ghostlines on 4/26 & 4/27. Plus a conversation on How to Make a Living as a Writer with Manjula Martin & Kima Jones on 4/28.

In the early nineties, poet, essayist, and activist June Jordan founded an incredible program at UC Berkeley. This academic year marks the 25th anniversary, and we are celebrating with an expanded final recital and a much-needed professional development conversation.

In the 25 years of the program, graduates have gone on to find many different types of creative success in the arts. Yet straightforward information about artistic livelihood can still be hard to come by.

To combat that lack of info, we’ll also be featuring Manjula Martin, author of the book SCRATCH and Kima Jones of Jack Jones Literary Arts in a conversation/Q&A about How to Make a Living as a Writer.

All events are free, wheelchair accessible, and open to the public. For info click here
