BIO: Kay Bell is an Educator, Storyteller and Music Enthusiast. For her, writing works as a birthing floor for healing, invention, and reimagination— where the poetic voice is responsible for both blessing and bruising the inquiring reader. Currently, she works as an Academic Advisor and Adjunct Professor at the City College of New York and can be found nurturing her plants and her two sons, in the heart of the South Bronx.
Unhurt & Rest is a transformative poetry workshop series that invites participants to explore the profound connection between poetry and personal healing.

Additional features of the workshop series will include exploring the history and therapeutic benefits of poetry, and learning how it has been used as a means of self-reflection, emotional release and resilience.
