Spoken Word is the art of performance poetry. It can be emotional, inspirational, educational, and as creative and expressive as your imagination. It can also be a tool for healing and growth. Participants will engage in writing activities that will broaden their approach to writing while giving them tools to use when developing their ideas. They will be introduced to technique, form, and literary devices and will examine models from poets across generations. The participants will also engage in performance activities. These activities will help each participant to bring their poems to life on stage and give them confidence in presenting their words. This is an opportunity for networking, growth, and development for anyone who has a message they want to deliver and ideas they want to put on the page. The only requirement is enthusiasm, an open mind, willingness to learn, and a love of words.
