Poetic Conversation - Women Witnessing the World through Words

Huguenot Loft

When women speak of what they have witnessed, mountains metaphorically move. 

Patricia Starek began writing poems as a teenager before becoming a member of the Asheville, N.C., slam team in 1996. She co-wrote and performed Stepsisters, a two-woman dialogue on race, womanhood, and friendship with Peace Center Poet-in-Residence Glenis Redmond. Currently, she develops intervention programs for struggling readers for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  

Sabrina Hayeem-Ladani is a multi-genre performer. She studied theater at Marymount Manhattan College, trained as a flamenco dancer in Spain, coached a team to the National Poetry Slam, and opened in concert for Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. Her poems can be seen in various publications, including in the anthology So Much Things To Say: One Hundred Poems of Calabash and The Wide Shore, a journal of global women's poetry.
