826LA@Hammer: LIST-O-RAMA: The Easiest Poem You’ll Ever Write

  • This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8–14

As simple as a grocery list and as tricky as a lock combination, the list poem offers writers a way to tell stories in snapshots. In this workshop, participants write list poems using a word tree, group exercises, and sensory stations full of inspiration. Ashaki M. Jackson is a social psychologist and a poet. Her work appears in CURA magazine, Pluck, and Prairie Schooner, among other publications.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, and all Hammer members.

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.

Hammer Kids also receives support from friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional funding is provided by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
