Cuvaj se Workshops in Gracanica

Heather Derr-Smith met with students at the Gymnasium in Gracanica, Bosnia for poetry workshops on May 14, 2019. It was a great group of young people so excited to share poetry and literature and to perform their parody of Hamlet which was hilarious. They were so full of joy. Derr-Smith presented work by Jericho Brown, Ilya Kaminsky, and Gabrielle Calvocoressi as well as work by Selma Asotic, Amila Kahrovic-Posavljak, and Ani Gjika, and Velid Beganovic-Borjen. Students made quilt blocks with messages of thanks or quotes from things they had read during the semester for their teacher. Derr-Smith will embroider there messages on a quilt to send to Ljela Djulic.
