I was astounded about the results of your women-only workshops vs. co-ed writing workshops. Did you teach any men-only workshop? Did they write about topics of trauma? In the co-ed workshops, did men write about trauma, sensitive and emotionally difficulty subjects?

Because the young women are less apt to speak up and tell their honest stories when males are present, would you still consider have a separate workshop for them?

Hello I cannot speak because I'm on the bus from school. My question is: What is the procedure for getting the legal authority to publish the work of writers who are no longer alive, like President Edwin J. Barclay?
Enisio Cooper

Interesting dynamic. I saw this dynamic in pieces that were written years ago.

This was such a powerful presentation— thank you. My question is about your comment regarding the need to move from Eurocentric traditions to specifically Liberian topics. How do you encourage this in your workshops? Do you set themes for spontaneous composition? And do you encourage specific poetic forms?

Thanks for this mind blowing talk and project, Sis. Patricia. It is the power of the creatives that will transform Liberia and the world. I love how you bring up the multidimensional crises we face in Liberia-rape, corruption and make a part of the project.
