Nathaniel Gadsden has been a published writer for the past 30 years.
Nate has written the official poems for Mayor Stephen R. Reed, The Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, and named Poet Laureate for the City of Harrisburg, PA.
In 1977, Nate founded the Writers Wordshop. He is currently the Director and the principle trainer for the after school program.
The Wordshop was created to develop a platform for Poets and Writers to share their works, meet each other, and to publish their work.
The Wordshop has become a forum for exploring issues, realities, myths, statistics, and rhetoric. Nate facilitates students in the creation of their works of art, from the mind to pen and paper.
The Wordshop helps Writers and Poets to find their voice, gain confidence, and allows for publication. Students, of the Wordshop, have become known for their work and are
often asked to be a participant in events throughout the area.
Persons of all ages and races are welcome to join the Writers Wordshop meetings. The Writers Wordshop offers poetry readings, book discussions, and publishing opportunities.
