Zedeka Poindexter offers residencies that explore sensory language and food writing. In these workshops, she will provide example poems, writing prompts, and discussion on the cultural exchange that takes place when people share food and/or recipes. Residency participants will exchange ideas, share sensory experiences, and practice presenting work out loud. Zedeka has spent more than a decade facilitating workshops on both writing and performance in a host of environments, including K-12, post-secondary, community centers, and prisons. She can build connections with an audience by finding shared sensory experiences and building on them. She also has 15 years of experience with adult education and instructional design in the corporate world, adding to Zedeka’s ability to function successfully in a host of educational situations. Zedeka has extensive experience working with high school students in the Nebraska Writer’s Collective’s slam poetry program, and has also conducted many virtual, online classes for different groups.
