Poetry Performances

Performance poetry is a powerful tool that when utilized correctly can transform, challenge thinking, provide solace, inspire, and entertain. Need a poetry performance for an upcoming event?.


She is dedicated to cultivating an enriching experience and will help foster and guarantee the success of being a keynote speaker at your event!


Both creative writing and performance helped foster Amoah’s confidence and she is committed to passing this vehicle of higher self esteem onto others. Need Cynthia to facilitate an upcoming workshop?

Creative Writing

Amoah understands the importance of an intentional and well curated creative writing curriculum to include representation, diversity, and literary texts. Interested in a personalized curriculum for your classroom or writing group? 


Think of Cynthia as a personal Audible narrator. Do you need her to narrate or read your work? She can overlay her words with your video installations, or create an audio accompaniment for pieces in a gallery show. 

What they’re saying

Cynthia was able to come in during a creative writing project in my classroom, share her work with my students, and they were immediately captivated and inspired.

It was the first time I had ever heard such a dynamic performer and an incredibly moving performance

I remember how low I was feeling about thebtotal disregard of black lives in this country and the power of Cynthia’s words calmed me – even for a moment
