Join us as members of the Canon TRIPOD writers-in-residence program at Drexel’s Writers Room read selections of current work about their lives, their neighborhoods, and their city. Writers include:
Sarah Adigba is pursuing a BS in Chemical Engineering from Drexel University and has been writing as a way to answer the questions gnawing at her heart.
Briyanna Hymms, a biology major at Drexel University, works as a lab tech, but is secretly a poet, painter, gardener, and amateur banana bread baker and leaves a trail of paper cranes wherever she goes.
Jasmine James is an ArtistYear fellow at Paul Robeson High School in West Philadelphia, dedicated to helping others improve their writing skills, harness their creativity, and find the courage to highlight their true voice while pursuing a BA in English at Drexel University.
Lauren Lowe, a Drexel University BA English major, has been a member of the Writers Room since the age of 19 and currently serving as its Alumni Writing Fellow.
Writers Room is a university-community literary arts program engaged in creative placemaking and art for social justice. We are a diverse intergenerational collective of students/alumni, faculty/staff, and neighborhood residents whose work demonstrates a desire for collaborative opportunities in our joint communities.
