Actually the Poems Keep the Score: Writing Memory, Family and the Shifting Self

Meet Your Workshop Lead: Edythe Rodriguez

Edythe Rodriguez is an Upper Darby poet and copywriter, hardcore Bustelo drinker and non-violent Beyhive member. She studied creative writing and Africology at Temple University where she developed both an Afrocentric writing praxis and the urge to amplify the full range and personality of Black language. Edythe has received fellowships from PEN America, Hurston/Wright, The Watering Hole and elsewhere. She is the first place winner of the 2022 Sandy Crimmins Poetry Prize from Philadelphia Stories and the 2021 Margaret Reid Prize from Winning Writers. Her work is either published or forthcoming in Obsidian, The Offing, The Rumpus and Torch Literary Arts.
