Bissell Grogan Symposium Speaker Series

The Resiliency of the Human Spirit Experience Through Poetry
Liza Zayas (Luna del Flor), Spoken Word Poet
The art of rhyme is heard in poems, songs, raps and found in greeting cards and other forms of expression. The ability to speak thoughts and emotions not easily defined in laymen's terms gives poetry the aura of power, its writer a liberation and the reader or listener a witnessing. Poetry's storytelling journey of human experiences allows for the human spirit's resiliency to be celebrated in non-fictional yet mythical tales allowing the writer to honor their courage, achievements and muses. Its outlet releases love, healing and even laughter. This talk hopes to encourage the audience to delve into their inner writer and appreciate the creativity and honesty unlocked when we do.
