Major Jackson at Mighty Writers West

Major Jackson, our Visiting Writer for Spring 2017, stopped by Mighty Writers West to talk and write with a group of the young writers there.

Jackson ran a workshop with the students. The girl pictured with him (below, right) considers herself a poet—he gave her a one on one reading of the poem she handed him in the photo. The students also had the opportunity to ask him questions about his life growing up in Philadelphia.
