I attended and participated in a poetry competition hosted by the Center for black literature held at Medgar Evers College at the beginning of the year. I met writers, poets UX/XI designers, and people in the film industry. The completion lasted for about an hour and a half which was quite entertaining and informative.
I participated in the auditions and even though I did not win the spot to perform at the actual conference I met some wonderful people. The conference was canceled because of COVID, however, I have been communicating with organizers via email and hope the relationship will bear some good fruit post-pandemic. That was a great networking experience.
