Spoken Word Poetry Workshop- 1-5 Hour workshop (Gr 7-12)

Words have the power to create, to heal, and to change ones perspective.  Throughout history poetry has been at the forefront of speaking fresh life into culture - helping people see life from a new perspective.  In this workshop students will be taught the history and different styles of spoken word poetry, how to write and perform spoken word poems and how to think creatively.  At the end of the workshop students will perform their own piece - participating in their own poetry slam!  This can be taught in an individual class as a 1 hour workshop or an all day intensive.
