You are cordially invited by the Hostos Writing Center and the Office of the President for an afternoon of Peace and Poetry. This event will be a gathering where our vibrant community converges, allowing our collective imagination to soar toward the creation of a more promising world through the transformative power of words. 
Hostos President Daisy Cocco De Filippis and the Writing Center will welcome poets Desirée Alvarez, Robert Anthony Gibbons, John Maney, Jr., Hostos Nursing Assistant Professor Teresa Gray, Student Government Association (SGA) President Dainma Martínez, and SGA Senator Ansumana Jammeh. 

As the festivities draw to a close, we will have an open mic session. Keep your ear to the ground for a call for submissions, as this is your opportunity to step into the spotlight, share your artistry, and leave a mark on this celebration. 
Refreshments will be served.
This event is also possible thanks to Ms. MacKenzie Scott’s Gift: President’s Initiatives.
