Poetry is an invitation for introspection, an opportunity to reveal your unique voice and unearth what it is yours to express. Join our speakers as they discuss their relationship with poetry and how the medium connects their experiences into words. Sharing poems of conflict, desire, and exile, these three women discuss and perform the power of the written word.

Puisi adalah sebuah ajakan untuk introspeksi, sebuah kesempatan untuk mengungkapkan suara-suara dan menggali apa yang ingin kita ungkapkan. Mari bergabung bersama para pembicara kami saat mereka mendiskusikan hubungan mereka dengan puisi dan bagaimana perantara ini menghubungkan pengalaman mereka ke dalam kata-kata. Berbagi puisi konflik, keinginan, dan pengasingan, ketiga wanita ini berdiskusi dan menampilkan kekuatan kata-kata yang tertulis.
