2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Yolanda Wisher has been offered a month-long residency in Woody Creek, Colorado, from October 1-31, by Aspen Words, a program of the Aspen Institute. During the residency, Yolanda will be working on two projects-in-progress — arranging a book of poetry tracing a genealogical quest for ancestors and living relatives, as well as compiling another book of poetics about that work, reflecting on her organizing with Poetry for the People Philly in 1999 and the Germantown Poetry Festival from 2006 to 2010. Yolanda aims for these works to become textbooks and blueprints that will aid her work as a poetry educator and as a teacher of teachers.
