Valencia College

Visiting Authors Shawn Welcome and Raymond Jimenez

The authors Shawn Welcome and Raymond Jimenez will be reading poetry from their work. Shawn Welcome launched a poetry and life skills program for youth offenders at 33rd St. Jail, and he is the founder of "Diverse Work" at Dandelion Communitea Cafe, a weekly open mic poetry night in Orlando, Florida.

Raymond Jimenez is a sculptor, and ceramicist, he deals with concepts of identity, perception, language, and timelessness, but as a poet, his work emphasizes the immediate, and experiential, especially in regards to slam.
