Poetry Workshop with May Lee-Yang In-Person

COMPAS teaching artist May Lee-Yang will work with students on the art of crafting poetry. Attendees will get to experiment with different types of poems and will leave with their own poetry workbook, including example poems and space to create their own poems.

May is an award-winning playwright, poet, prose writer, and performance artist. Her theater-based works have been presented locally at Mu Performing Arts, the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT), Intermedia Arts as well as nationally at Out North Theater (Anchorage) and the National Asian American Theater Festivals in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. She is the author of the children’s book The Imaginary Day (MN Humanities Center/Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans) and has been published Bamboo Among the Oaks: Contemporary Writing By Hmong Americans, Water~Stone Literary Journal, The Saint Paul Almanac, and others. In other parts of her life, she is a co-founder of Community Artist Leadership Initiative (C.A.L.I.), an organization whose mission is to build the leadership capacity of marginalized artist and is a co-founder of F.A.W.K. (Funny Asian Women Kollective), a collaborative to empower Asian women through comedy.

This program is supported by MELSA and funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
