Spoken Word with Nisha Patel
April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate we are joined by Nisha Patel, award-winning Indo-Canadian poet, artist, and public speaker from Edmonton, Alberta. She is the current Poet Laureate for the City of Edmonton and Regional Writer in Residence at Strathcona County and St. Albert. She is also the 2019 Canadian Individual Slam Champion and the Executive Director of the Edmonton Poetry Festival. Nisha is taking part in the 12th annual Victorious Voices, happening April 12-15.
For this session, Nisha will provide a writing prompt or two to get you started on creating your own poems- so make sure you have paper and a pencil close by.
RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.
