Shakespeare in Clark Park is thrilled to be expanding our FREE arts programming for Philadelphia this summer with a series of community poetry workshops led by Philly native writer, performer and educator Warren C. Longmire with guest local poets each week!

In this session, join writer and organizer Noah David Roberts as we explore poetry writing that challenges and transforms conventions of gender and sexuality. All sessions focus on different topics inspired by our upcoming summer production of As You Like It, July 24-28 at the Bowl in Clark Park.

Attendees will be invited to learn, write and speak up at each session culminating in public shares of local poetry before the opening and closing performances in the park! Each session will also include generative prompts, featured performances and an open reading.

This is the first of two workshops for As You Like It held at Studio 34 — the other is on June 29. join us to raise your voice as we invite Philadelphians to join us in speaking up, making work and sharing it!
