Here is what our students had to say about CLI
"I had an unforgettable experience with CLI. I made great friends. And each friend contributed to my growth as a poet/spoken word artist. They also connected me to so many poetry venues and events. I would gladly recommend this class to the next upcoming poet. By the way, Mr. Hiram Sims is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!"
"My experience with my CLI class (cohort 2) was life-changing. I had been studying and writing poetry for years but had no idea about how to become a published author. My year of writing with CLI, before organizing my final manuscript, was inspired by everyone in my class and by Hiram. By the time I got to the night of my book launch I was a changed person, book in hand, ready to write more and read more. Thank you, CLI!"
"CLI was a great experience for me. Meeting different poets who have made a way through the fine art itself was very exciting. My instructors were great allowing a safe space to write and learn different elements of poetry. Overall a great space for poetry and creativity."
