In honor of Martin Luther King Day, I’m celebrating some amazing poets. I have scheduled several posts to appear throughout the day. I hope you are as inspired as I am by these amazing writers.
Fatima’s Sidewalk Poetry: http://flowerwordspoetry.com/sidewalk-poetry/
It is an honor to be able to call Fatima Hirsi a friend. Every time I see her perform, I develop new admiration for her work. She is one of the few poets whose work consistently moves me to tears. Whenever I take one of her workshops, I am amazed at the poems that result.
Fatima Hirsi currently lives in Texas, where she works at a bookstore and teaches writing workshops to children at the Writer’s Garret. She recently completed a Sidewalk Poetry tour of the western United States.
