Since 2001, Lindsay Zier-Vogel has been teaching writing and movement workshops in the community and in schools. She has worked with hundreds of students to find their own creative voices and create their own works of art.
From poetry to fiction, contemporary dance performances and hand-bound books to community-based love letters, Lindsay encourages students to create without judgment, promoting the accessibility of language-based art.
