Spoken Poetry is Transformational

This class will introduce young adults to the art of spoken word poetry.   Students will be encouraged to listen, write, and perform poetry with focus on social commentary, tone, and eventually compete in a poetry competition – a Slam.  The class will meet once a week for general discussion and performances, and will also have a workshop times available where students can come in and get one-on-one help with their work.  The final class will be a poetry slam open to the public where every student will perform selected pieces.  Public performances include Cypher Night, First Friday’s, and Poetry Slams.
