    Poetry Reading and Writing Workshop
    MSUM CMU 114
    3pm - 4pm

    Please join us for a poetry reading by Jibran Al Arif, a member of the Seattle based hip hop group the Fooligan Crew. Much like his music, Jibran's poetry addresses topics that many of us can relate to from speaking out against societal injustices to romantic relationships and family. After his reading, Jibran will dedicate time to answer questions as well as give advice on the creative writing process.
