  • Starline Social Club 2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

We invite you to one special evening with poet, writer, and actress Yrsa Daley-Ward. In this workshop performance, Yrsa shares her works in progress and offer tools for attendees to document their own spectacular stories. 

Yrsa Daley-Ward is a model, actor and writer of mixed West Indian and West African heritage. Born to a Jamaican mother and a Nigerian father, Yrsa was raised by her devout Seventh Day Adventist grandparents in the small town of Chorley in the North of England. Yrsa interweaves experience with each influence to fuse poetry with theatre, music and storytelling. She travels a lot grasping for that illusive thing known as Good Mental Health. Food makes her happy. Very very. Otherwise extraordinary, she is also known for two published collections of stories: On Snakes and Other Stories, as well as Bone.
