For the First Time

In the past three days, I have learned so much more. I realized how much I enjoy working with kids, playing with them and interacting with them. I realized that if you muster up enough courage to shake off the dust of fear and nervousness from your shoulders, and take one small leap anything is possible. This also includes conducting a spoken word poetry workshop all by yourself for the first time.


आपूर्तिको नाकामा कविताका भाका


राइट टु स्पिक तथा अम्रिकन एम्ब्सीको बुक बुस कार्यक्रमको सहकार्यमा विरगन्जमा spoken word poetry टुर भएको थियो। पुष ३ गते देखि ९ गते सम्म भएको सो टुर, बीरगंजका विभिन्न स्कूल तथा कलेजहरुमा पुग्यो । विरगन्जका युवाहरु सित कविता भन्दै-सुन्दै बिताएको त्यो एक हप्ताको अनुभव ।


Poetry in Extremis


‘Poetry in Extremis’ conducted at Quixote’s Cove (December 3 &4, 2016) was a poetry workshop organized by Word Warriors. In this two day workshop supervised by Eleanor Walsh, participants discussed a selection of poems that focused on speaking against social injustice and discrimination.
