CoraZones: Willy Palomo

Jul 23, 2022, 2:00 pm

CoraZones is a reading and writing cipher for the Utah Poetry Slam community. Corazón means heart in Spanish. CoraZones fosters a warm, inclusive space for community members to exercise and strengthen their creativity.

Willy Palomo will be the host for 7.232022.

*Please come prepared with a method of writing, be it a notepad and writing utensil, laptop, cellphone or whatever.*

CoraZones will start at 2pm at Under the Umbrella Bookstore. Each session will begin with a brief introduction, including chosen pronouns, and an emotional health check-in of participants to gauge the energy people are bringing into the room. After the check-in, the host will lead a reading exercise and discussion to teach a literary technique. After the conversation, participants will have time to generate new writing. Time will be provided at the end of the hour for participants to share their newly created work, as well as share poems they are seeking feedback on.
