Inviting the Poem Into the Room

January 27, 2022

Thursday, Jan 27, 2022, from 4pm – 5pm AZ time

In this experiential presentation, we will experiment with ways to welcome poetry (on and off the page) into the classroom. We will work with improvisational techniques to expand what is possible, while also having a lot of fun.

​​Hey y’all! My name is TC Tolbert (he/him/hey grrrl!) and instead of a bio, here are a few things I’d prefer to share: I like walking up a mountain more than walking down; on the Enneagram, I’m a 1; I’m also a Capricorn; learning is infinitely more interesting to me than knowing (and scarier, too); along with my partner, I am wildly blessed to get to care for one pit bull who is willing to cuddle any time day or night; I am white and I was born and raised a girl in Hixson, TN as a speaking-in-tongues Pentecostal and I eventually came out as queer, feminist, anti-racist, and trans-masc; I now live in Tucson, which occupies the traditional territories of the Tohono O’odham and Pascua Yaqui peoples; I never cease to experience a simultaneous grief and deep love any time I pay attention to the world. If you want to learn more about my writing, teaching, or collaborations, here’s my website. I’m wild with gratitude for the space and time to be together with all of you.​
