Share Your Life Story through Poetry

Poetry writing workshop with former Madison Poet Laureate Fabu Phillis Carter, PhD.

Weekly on Friday


Fabu Phillis Carter, professionally known as Fabu, is the former Madison Poet Laureate (2008-2012) and an author of seven books. She is an active public lecturer, workshop leader, poetry columnist and storyteller. Fabu creates a welcoming space for individuals to discover that yes, you too can write poetry!

This series will invite writers to share their life story or legacy. Everyone has a story to tell. Upon completion of your poetry, you will have something to frame and share with your family and friends. You will also have the opportunity, if you choose, to display your poetry at various sites around Madison.

Participate online or come to GCC to participate with a group.
