Hello YCA Fam,
Today is Wednesday, June 7th, AND it is also Gwendolyn Brooks's Birthday! Gwendolyn Brooks is so important to the work we do at YCA. We strive to honor her commitment to craft and community at all times. What better way to celebrate than by writing a poem today? As you know, every Wednesday we will be sharing a writing prompt to help you write. If you choose to write, please tag us on social media: @youngchiauthors on Twitter & @youngchicagoauthors on Instagram.
Today's prompt features a poem by Aracelis Girmay.
Journeys that you take routinely.
Historic journeys that your family has taken (this is not necessarily a journey that you took, but one that you feel connected to)
