TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Terre Haute Pride Center hosted its first ever poetry event Sunday afternoon. The event will now take place every Sunday at the center.
Participants learned how to write different forms of poetry. Poetry coordinator Jason Shearer said this was an opportunity for him to pour his heart out to the community.
“It makes me feel larger than myself,” Shearer said. “It’s just something I’ve always tried to get out of my head so that I can feel not necessarily better about what I’m doing but feel I can put my heart into the community because that is important to me. I really want to put who I am out there for people to be able to experience and lead them to be able to grow from what I have grown from.”
Pride Center representatives said they are looking forward to hosting more poetry sessions in the coming weeks. The events are open to all age groups.
